In order to explain my project, I must start at the fundamental cause of sound, indefinably, vibration. Vibration is defined as mechanical oscillations about an equilibrium point (starting point). These oscillations can be periodic such as the motion of a pendulum or random such asthe motion of a bouncing ball on a bumpy road. There are two main types of vibration. There arefree vibration and forced vibration. Free vibration occurs when something is set off by an initialinput and is allowed to vibrate freely. An example of this is hitting a bell and letting it ring or holding a chain and letting it swing. Forced vibration occurs when an alternating force or motionis applied to something. An example of this is a shaking washing machine due to imbalance or the vibration of a building during an earthquake.Often, vibration is undesirable. It wastes energy and creates unwanted sounds such as in mo-tors and engines. These vibrations can cause imbalances in moving parts. Certain designs areimportant to take into consideration and are sometimes necessary, in the making of vehicles, in-struments, and various things because of this constant presence of sound. However, in recent years scientists have been working with sound as a form of renewable energy. Sound has often been forgotten and has been run over by hydro, wind, electric forms of energy. Now scientist are working on perfecting types of power such as thermoacoustics. In many cases vibration is very desirable. For example the motion of a tuning fork, the reedon a woodwind instrument, or the cone on a loudspeakerand is necessary for the correct functioning of various de- vices. Where would we be without sound. Give me a timeduring your day when you do not hear sound. Vibrations oscillate at what we call a frequency. But inorder to understand them we must first understand thefundamentals of vibration analysis. We will start with a simple Mass-Spring-Damper model. Even a highly intricatestructure such as an automobile can be modeled as a summation of a simple Mass-Spring-Damper model. A Mass-Spring-Damper model is a model of a simple harmonicoscillator as shown.
