Aim:
To determine the spring stiffness and natural frequency of single degree spring
mass system theoretically and experimentally.

Description of Apparatus:

One end of the open coil spring is fixed to the screw which engages with the screwed
hand wheel. The screw can be adjusted vertically in any convenient position and then clamed
to upper supported plane by the means of lock nuts. Lower end of the spring is attached to the
platform carrying the dead loads. Thus the design of the system incorporates vertical

Aim:-To determines the natural frequency of undammed torsional vibration of single shaft
rotor system.

Description of Set up :-

One end of the shaft is gripped in the chuck and heavy flywheel free to rotate in ball
bearing is fixed at the other end of the shaft. The bracket with fixed end of the shaft can be
clamped at any convenient position along vertical beam. Thus length of the shaft can be
varied during the experiments. Specially designed chucks are used for clamping ends of the
shaft. The ball bearing support to the rotor provides negligible damping during the
experiment. The bearing housing is fixed to side member of main frame.

Procedure:-
1. Fix the bracket at convenient position along the vertical beam
2. Grip one end of the shaft at the bracket by the chuck
3. Fix the rotor one the other end of the shaft
4. Twist the rotor through some angle and release.
5. Note down the time required for n oscillation.

## Aim :- To determine the damping ratio and logarithmic decrement of damped

Torsional vibration of single shaft rotor system.

Description of set-up:

Set up consists of a long elastic shaft gripped at the upper end by the chuck in the
bracket. The bracket is clamped to the upper beam of main frame. A disc clamped at the
lower end of the shaft suspends from the bracket. On this disc, two extension rods from
the periphery are arranged. The rods facilitate for another rods in each to be clamped
vertically. The rods (damper arms) clamped vertically can be used for different depths of
immersion in water or oil housed by two tanks on the sides of a disc.

The recorder is placed below the disc in order to note the cycle by a sketch pen.
The speed of paper is 40mm/sec.

Procedure:
1. Arrange the set up.
2. Fill the required fluid in damping liquid tank.
3. Immerse the arms in the liquid tank to required depth.
4. Oscillate lower rotor and start the recorder.
5. Wait till the oscillations diminish.
Repeat the procedure for different depth of immersion.

EXPERIMENT NO:-6

## Semester :- 7thSem Date:-

Subject:- Mechanical vibration and Noise Engineering (ME-703)

AIM:

## To study the whirling of Shaft

THEORY:

If a body or disc mounted upon shafts rotates about it then C.G. of disc must be at shaft axis,
if perfect running balance is to be obtained. But practically, because of difficulty of perfect
machining, disc C.G. does not coincide with shaft axis. Hence, when such shaft rotates, it
deflects towards heavier side of disc due to unbalanced centrifugal force. As we go on
increasing the speed of shaft, a speed is reached at which the disc vibrates violently, this is
the critical speed. After passing this speed, the shaft again runs quietly.

Critical speed depends upon the magnitude and location of the load carried by the
shaft, length and diameter of the shaft and support conditions. The shaft may be operated
below and above critical speed. Higher speed are rarely used, e.g. some stream turbines
exceed critical speed, but they do not run long enough at critical speed for vibrations to build
up to an excessive amplitude.

APPARATUS DESCRTPTION:

The apparatus is designed to demonstrate this phenomenon. lt consists of a base frame over
which two bearing supports are mounted. The driving end carries a bearing block with two
ball bearings giving fixed end condition for shaft. At tail end, two types of bearing blocks are
provided , one for fixed tail end and one for free tail end. The shaft is driven by a variable
speed motor.

Each shaft is provided with eccentric revolving disc. Thus, the student can visualize
the effect of whirling of the shaft".

PROCEDURE:

## i) Fix the required shaft at the driving end.

ii) Fix the bearing block at tail end (either for fixed end condition or free end condition) and
tighten the shaft.

iii) Start the motor and slowly increase the speed. At a certain speed, disc will vibrate
violently. Hold the shaft by hand to avoid shaft bending and note down the speed.

iv) Increase the speed. Now shaft will operate above critical speed without vibrations.
