That a modern Dutch poet should have found inspiration in Classical Chinese poetry and philosophy may seem rather unlikely. Yet, the contents of his personal library and a number of statements made in interviews reveal how Hans Faverey (1933-1990) had a great interest in oriental literature, art and thought (especially Taoism and Buddhism). Although many articles have been devoted to the use and function of intertext in Faverey’s poetry, scant attention has been paid to the possible influence of Chinese philosophers and poets on his work. I will argue that Faverey’s obsession with themes like emptiness, stillness and silence may be interpreted as an attempt to integrate some fundamental Taoist and Buddhist ideas into his writing. Taking Faverey’s oriental library as my starting point, and contextualizing it with reference to Tang dynasty poets such as Wang Wei and Li Shang-Yin, and quotations from Kung Sun Lung and the School of Names, I aim to shed a clearer light on those possible connections. The first part of my paper will focus on a number of general concepts from Chinese literature and philosophy, and discuss how Faverey assimilated these concepts into his own poems. The second part of my presentation will be devoted to a comparison between the Tao as text and a selection of Faverey’s work in order to highlight possible parallels in their use of symbols and imagery. Since Faverey, as a poet, was constantly working with and thinking about the written word, he may have been struck not only by Chinese philosophy itself but also by the way in which these thoughts had found their expression in language. The structure of the Chinese language and its penchant for paradoxical turns of phrase may have held an additional appeal for the Amsterdam poet, renowned for his pithy, hermetic writing style that abounds in paradoxes and uncommon allusions.

The concept of nonlinear normal modes (NNMs) provides a solid and rigorous theoretical framework for the analysis of the nonlinear oscillations of mechanical systems. If NNMs have been studied since more than fifty years, it is only very recently that contributions dealing with their numerical calculation have been reported in the literature. Although these methods pave the way for the application of NNMs to more complex systems, they have not yet reached the necessary maturity. In this context, the purpose of this research is (i) to further investigate the performance of an existing method for computing the NNMs of conservative systems and (ii) to propose two new methods for the computation of NNMs of nonconservative systems. The first contribution of this thesis is to calculate the NNMs of a real-life aerospace structure, the SmallSat spacecraft developed by EADS Astrium. An algorithm that combines an advanced shooting method with the pseudo-arclength continuation technique is utilized. We show that the NNMs provide a very useful interpretation of the strongly nonlinear dynamics of the spacecraft. One specific contribution is to numerically reproduce with great fidelity several interactions between modes with noncommensurate linear frequencies that were observed experimentally. The second original contribution of this thesis is to develop two new methods for computing the NNMs of damped systems. The first method solves the partial differential equations (PDEs) governing the geometry of the NNM. The PDEs are recognized as hyperbolic, and it is shown that they require appropriate numerical treatments including specific boundary conditions. The proposed method combines a streamline upwind Petrov-Galerkin finite-element formulation with a resolution strategy based on annular domains to grow sequentially the manifold. The algorithm is demonstrated using a wide variety of systems ranging from two-degree-of-freedom to multi-degree-of-freedom nonlinear systems with linear and nonlinear damping. The applicability of the algorithm to complex real-life structures is demonstrated using a full-scale aircraft. The second method presented in this work computes a NNM as a collection of trajectories defined with boundary value problems (BVPs). The method has the distinctive advantage that it does not rely on a parameterization of the NNM. It is demonstrated on two-degree-of-freedom examples featuring linear and nonlinear damping. [less ▲]
