This paper deals with transient nonlinear vibration of a rigid body suspended on a foundation by elastic springs and constrained in a plane. In such a three degree-of-freedom vibration isolation system, we assume that ‘2-1-1’ internal resonance exists between the vertical and horizontal vibrations of the rigid body and the rotational vibration about its center of gravity. Next, the vibration of the rigid body is captured into or passes through resonance when the rotation speed of an unbalanced rotor equipped with the rigid body is increased. We theoretically examined the transient behavior of passage through resonance under the condition that a DC motor directly drives the unbalanced rotor with a limited electric current. Moreover, the experiment was conducted with a physical model of such a system, and transient oscillations through resonance were observed and compared with theoretical results in a few cases of limited currents.
