New formulas for obtaining the accurate amplitudes decay of the energy, velocity and displacement in the Duffing oscillator of odd-power stiffness components are derived here. The derivation is based on the new transformation proposed recently in the literature. These new formulas are found to be highly accurate in locating the decay envelopes of the energy, velocity and displacement regardless of the system physical parameters and the initial condition. In addition, the formulas are also found to be applicable to the damped double-well Duffing oscillator as long as the oscillation simultaneously occurs between the two stable equilibrium positions.
