## Chapter 11 Mechanical Vibration

9 Any motion which repeats itself after an interval of time is called vibration.

9 Machines with repetitive power sources, such as engine, motor, turbine, often
have vibration problems.

## 9 Vibration will cause uncomfortable feeling or noise. Serious vibration

problems may cause malfunctions or failure.

## 9 Spring is to temporarily store energy during vibration, and damper is to

consume the energy.

Type of Springs

## 9 In mechanical systems, springs are often used to absorb impact energy, to

store energy, to provide restoring forces, and to measure force.

9 From the way the springs are loaded, there are 4 major types of springs:
compression springs, extension springs, torsion springs, and radial springs.

Free Vibration of an Undamped, Torsional System
9 If a rigid body oscillates about a specific reference axis, the resulting motion is
called torsional vibration.
9 The displacement of a body is measured in terms of an angular coordinate, and
the restoring moment may be due to the torsion of an elastic member or to the
unbalanced moment or force.

internal planes that slip or slides as deformation f
takes place is called hysteretic damping.

viscous damping, and is often treated the same
way as viscous damping.
