Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Dynamics
Introduction
• Mechanical vibration is the motion of a particle or body which oscillates about a position of equilibrium. Most vibrations in machines and structures are undesirable due to increased stresses and energy losses. • Time interval required for a system to complete a full cycle of the motion is the period of the vibration. • Number of cycles per unit time defines the frequency of the vibrations. • Maximum displacement of the system from the equilibrium position is the amplitude of the vibration. • When the motion is maintained by the restoring forces only, the vibration is described as free vibration. When a periodic force is applied to the system, the motion is described as forced vibration. • When the frictional dissipation of energy is neglected, the motion is said to be undamped. Actually, all vibrations are damped to some degree.
