In this paper, we study the emergence of localized states in the weakly nonlinear regime. We show that multiple spatially localized solutions may exist, and the resulting bifurcation diagram strongly resembles the snaking pattern observed in a variety of fields in physics, such as optics and fluid dynamics. Moreover, in the transition from the linear to the nonlinear behaviour isolated branches of solutions are identified. Localization is caused by the hardening effect introduced by the nonlinear stiffness, and occurs at large excitation levels. Contrary to the case of mistuning, the presented localization mechanism is triggered by the nonlinearities and arises in perfectly homogeneous systems. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/2329||ISSN:||0022-460X||Institute:||Strukturdynamik M-14||Type:||(wissenschaftlicher) Artikel||Funded by:||DFG PA 3303/1-1,HO 3852/11-1|
