This mathematical description can be obtained by taking advantage of the known laws of physics. One of the most frequently encounter in engineering type of motion is the oscillatory motion of a mechanical system about its equilibrium position. Process of solving of the mathematical model is called analysis and yields solution to the problem considered. This part of modelling is called creation of the physical model. Application of the physics law to the physical model yields the wanted mathematical description that is called mathematical model. Such a type of motion is called vibration. This part deals with study of linear vibrations of mechanical system. These laws can not be directly applied to the real system. . Therefore it is necessary to introduce many assumptions that simplify the engineering problems to such extend that the physic laws may be applied.8 Modelling is the part of solution of an engineering problems that aims towards producing its mathematical description.

These lows can not be directly applied to the real system.1 Physical model As an example of vibration let us consider the vertical motion of the body 1 suspended on the rod 2 shown in Fig. in general.1 MODELLING OF ONE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM SYSTEM DEFINITION: Modelling is the part of solution of an engineering problem that aims for producing its mathematical description. 1.Chapter 1 MECHANICAL VIBRATION OF ONE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM LINEAR SYSTEMS DEFINITION: Any oscillatory motion of a mechanical system about its equilibrium position is called vibration. Application of the physics law to the physical model yields the wanted mathematical description which is called mathematical model. one has to introduce an inﬁnite number of independent coordinates xi to determine uniquely its motion. If the body is forced out from its equilibrium position and then it is released. Therefore it is necessary to introduce many assumptions that simplify the problem to such an extend that the physic laws may by apply. The mathematical description of the engineering problem one can obtain by taking advantage of the known lows of physics. each point of the system performs an independent oscillatory motion. 1.1. i 2 1 xi t Figure 1 . 1. This part of modelling is called creation of the physical model. Therefore.

The following analysis will be restricted to system with one degree of freedom only. one has to produce its free body diagram.MODELLING OF ONE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM SYSTEM 10 DEFINITION: The number of independent coordinates one has to use to determine the position of a mechanical system is called number of degrees of freedom According to this deﬁnition each real system has an inﬁnite number of degrees of freedom. To produce the equation of the vibration of the body 1. its instantaneous position as a function of x is shown in Fig. In a general case. i xi 2 1 x t x Figure 2 Position xi of all the other points of our system depends on x. R 1 x t G Figure 3 The gravity force is denoted by G whereas the force R represents so called restoring force. For example. if one assume that the rod 2 is massless and the body 1 is rigid. If the rod is uniform. the restoring force R is a non-linear function of . Adaptation of certain assumptions. In the case considered the free body diagram is shown in Fig. 2). 3. 2. in many cases. may results in reduction of this number of degrees of freedom. The displacement x of the rigid body 1 can be chosen as the independent coordinate (see Fig. only one coordinate is suﬃcient to determine uniquely the whole system.

Result of this part of modelling is called physical model. k is called stiﬀness and c is called coeﬃcient of damping. shown in Fig. For presentation of the physical model we use symbols shown in the Fig. Such cases usually are refer to as linear vibration and the system considered is call linear system. 4 can be linearized. The physical model that reﬂects all the above mention assumption is called one-degree-of-freedom linear system.

This mathematical model can be obtained by application of the known physic lows to the adopted physical model. This mathematical description is referred to as the mathematical model.I rigid body of mass m and moment of inertia I (angular motion) 12 ϕ particle of of mass m m k A.

This require introduction of the absolute system of coordinates. 6. The resultant force of all static forces (in the example considered gravity force mg and interaction force due to the static elongation of spring kxs ) is equal to zero. If the system is out of the equilibrium position (see Fig. the restoring force is opposite to the positive direction of axis x. In this chapter we are assuming that the origin of the absolute system of coordinates coincides with the centre of gravity of the body while the body stays at its equilibrium position as shown in Fig.MODELLING OF ONE-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM SYSTEM 13 k c x k xs m mg Figure 6 Let as assume that the system is in an equilibrium. 7) by a distance x.

This increment is called restoring force. there is an increment in the interaction force between the spring and the block. To develop the mathematical model we take advantage of Newton’s generalized equations. Hence FR = +k |x| = −kx Therefore the restoring force always can be represented in the equation of motion by term FR = −kx (1. Hence FR = −k |x| = −kx If x < 0.2) .

This process is called discretization and the ﬁnal result of this process is called multi-degree-of-freedom system. the number of degrees of freedom of each real element is equal to inﬁnity. But in many vibration problems.1 Physical model Fig. It follows that to determine its position with respect to the inertial space one has to introduce inﬁnite number of coordinates. therefore each of the particle the real element is made of can moves independently. 2.1.

Introduction of the external forces Since the ﬁnite element is considered elastic, the treatment of the external forces presented in the previous section can not be applied. In this case one has to take advantage of the principle of the virtual work. It says that the virtual work produced by a force Fi (see Fig. 38) on the displacement yi is equal to the virtual work produced by a set of forces along the coordinates yi1 ϕyi1 yi2 ϕyi2 .

The modal damping ratios ς 1 , ς 2 and ς 3 are unknown and are to be identiﬁed by ﬁtting the analytical transfer functions into the experimental ones. Since the transducer 5 (Fig. 1) produces acceleration, the laboratory installation permits to obtain the acceleration to force transfer function.

Hence, the frequencies ω corresponding to the phase ±90o are the wanted natural frequencies ω n . Because ς n and Ξpn are constants, magnitudes of the absolute value of the transfer functions for ω = ω n represents the modes Ξ1n , Ξ2n , Ξ3n associated with the n − th natural frequency. An example of extracting the natural frequency and the corresponding natural mode from the transfer function is shown in Fig. 4
