Considering the impact of the nonlinear stiffness, a 2-DOF vibration model with cubic terms was established according to the structural feature and nonlinear behavior. Ignoring the impact of nonlinear terms, the system was linearly analyzed. In the case of primary resonance and 1 : 1 internal resonance, a multiscale method was used to obtain a first-order approximate solution. Taking the parameters of one tracked ambulance for instance, the approximate solution was corroborated and the influence of the parameters on damping effect was investigated. Finally, motion stability of the damping system was analyzed with singularity theory. The theoretical bases for improving efficiency of the damping system were provided.
