In this paper, negative stiffness in static state is made stable by constraining it in positive matrix. The stability of the system is tested using energy function. The motion of the two mass model system is described with a system of two coupled nonlinear differential equations. The numerical results are validated by comparing the predictions with calculations from analytical method. For small oscillations about the static equilibrium position the numerical model agree with analytical model. The developed model can be served as an efficient means of eliciting negative stiffness.
