Latest Mechanical resonance Stories
In this month's issue of Physics World, an international group of researchers propose a new technology that could divert vibrations away from load-bearing elements of bridges to avoid catastrophic collapses.
Scientists have shown the energy conditions, under which a weak signal supplied to a physical system emerges as a stronger signal at the output thanks to the presence of random noise (a process known as stochastic resonance).

A power system now in development could charge cell phones and other gadgets without the use of wires, researchers at a conference in Britain said. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are experimenting with the physical phenomenon of resonance, which causes an object to vibrate when energy frequencies are applied, MIT Professor Marin Soljacic said in Oxford at the TED Global Conference on ideas worth spreading. It is resonance, for example, that causes a glass to explode...
