It is determined that vibro-impact systems in practical applications generate a number of problems because of the fact that in the regimes in which steady state motions take place multivalued motions are observed. Here it is shown that in a definite investigated case multivalued stable regimes of motion do not exist in the system. Here the investigation of single valued solutions is performed. They are especially useful for practical applications according to the performance of impact processes. The presented graphical relationships enable to choose the regimes suitable for practical applications that are with decaying impacts as well as stationary stable regimes.
Keywords: vibro impact system, single valued regimes, region of existence, eigenfrequencies and forced frequencies.
1. Introduction
In practical applications in engineering various dynamic regimes of motion of vibro-impact systems take place. An important problem is to investigate those regimes of motion, which are used in engineering applications.
In this paper dynamics in some typical regimes of motion are investigated in detail. Vibrations excited by a force of the system performing vibrations with impacts with excitation by a harmonic force are analysed. Graphical results of investigation for the values of parameters which are typical for the vibrating system were obtained and are shown in detail.
The results of investigation are used in the process of design of systems performing vibrations with impacts and they are applied in different types of technological processes and machines of different types.

2. Model of the investigated vibro-impact system
Dynamics of the system performing vibrations with impacts is governed by the differential equation:
where $m$ denotes the mass, $H$ denotes the viscous damping coefficient, $C$ denotes the stiffness coefficient, $F$ denotes the excitation amplitude, $\omega $ denotes the frequency, $t$ denotes the time variable, the dot above the quantity indicates derivative by t.
Process of impact is described as:
where by $R$ the restitution coefficient is denoted, by superscript minus the quantity before impact is denoted, by superscript plus the quantity after impact is denoted.
In non dimensional form Eq. (1) becomes:
In non dimensional form Eq. (2) becomes:
In the performed investigations the exciting force is denoted as:
Motions of the system in regimes that are periodic are investigated and the following graphical representations are presented: $\stackrel{-}{f}$ as function of $\tau ,$$x$ as function of $\tau ,$$x\text{'}$ as function of $\tau ,$$x\text{'}$ as function of $x.$
Further vibrations of the vibro impact system for several typical regimes of motions performing steady state vibrations are investigated.
3. Dynamics in periodic regimes of motion for low frequency of excitation
Graphical relationships for three typical values of $\nu $ are shown in the Figs. 1, 2 and 3 in order of increasing values of $\nu .$
Fig. 1 shows variation of force in time, variation of displacement in time, variation of velocity in time and variation of velocity as function of displacement for $\nu =1/6.$ It is seen that a very great number of multiple very fastly decaying impacts take place.
Fig. 2 shows variation of force in time, variation of displacement in time, variation of velocity in time and variation of velocity as function of displacement for $\nu =1/4.$ It is seen that a great number of multiple fastly decaying impacts take place.
Fig. 3 shows variation of force in time, variation of displacement in time, variation of velocity in time and variation of velocity as function of displacement for $\nu =1/2.$ It is seen that multiple decaying impacts take place.

It is observed that during the motion in a period of force a number of impacts are observed. With the value of $\nu $ becoming smaller in general the number of impacts becomes higher. Decaying impacts are clearly observed in the obtained results. Thus it can be considered that cyclic motion of the vibro-impact system takes place.

6. Regions of optimal behavior of the system in periodic regimes of motion
Minimum and maximum values of basic parameters determining dynamic behavior of the investigated vibro-impact system are investigated as functions of frequency of excitation. Frequency regions were minimum and maximum values coincide correspond to regions of single valued motions, while to the left and right of those regions multi valued motions take place. Single valued motions are important in practical applications and thus this paper is devoted to their investigation.

7. Conclusions
Vibro impact systems in practical applications generate a number of problems because of the fact that in the regimes in which steady state motions take place multivalued motions are observed. In the paper it is determined that this can be avoided by choosing some of the parameters of the system. This is very important in practical applications creating vibro-impact systems. Thus, it is shown that in a definite investigated case multivalued stable regimes of motion do not exist in the system. The investigation of single valued solutions is performed.
System performing vibrating motions with impacts excited by a harmonic force is analysed, especially those regimes of motion, which are important in engineering applications. Dynamics in some typical regimes of motion is investigated in detail.
Regimes of motion for frequencies of excitation $\nu =$1/6; 1/4; 1/2 are investigated. Those regimes are with multiple decaying impacts. Thus, it is concluded that for low frequencies of excitation impacts have the character of decaying type.
The size according to the frequency of excitation of separate optimal regions of operation about $\nu =$ 2; 4; 6 in which there exist single valued solutions is determined. Minimum and maximum values of basic parameters determining dynamic behavior of the investigated vibro impact system are investigated as functions of frequency of excitation. Frequency regions were minimum and maximum values coincide correspond to regions of single valued motions, while to the left and right of those regions multi valued motions take place. Single valued motions are important in practical applications and thus this paper is devoted to their investigation.
The results of investigation are applied in the process of design of systems performing vibrating motions with impacts and are used in their applications in different technological processes and machines of different types.
