As an aid in the establishment of these analogies a complete theme is depicted in each illustration. the mathe- matics more readily applied and the analytical solutions more readily obtained in the familiar system. The importance and value of dynamical analogies to any one concerned with vibrating systems have led to a demand for expositions on this branch of dynamics. E. an electrical circuit. mechanical mechanical rotational and acoustical systems. By means of analogies the knowledge in electrical circuits may be applied to the solution of problems in mechanical and acoustical systems. The subject matter is developed in stages from the simple element through to comrectilineal. The relations and actions are more easily visualized. Although not generally so considered the electrical circuit is the most common and widely exploited vibrating system. By means is of may be compared with one that better known. Olson.

Mathematically the elements electric circuit in an electrical network are the coeffi- cients in the differential equations describing the network. Electrical circuit theory is the branch of electromagnetic theory which deals with electrical oscillations in linear electrical networks. In an electrical circuit the number of degrees of freedom is equal to the number of independent closed meshes or circuits. this operational method can be applied to any analytically similar system. ' The lished. Electrical elements are resistance. The mechanical engineer is interested in the development of various mechanisms or vibrating systems involving masses. . In a field problem there is variation in two or three dimensions. induct- ance and capacitance. mechanoacoustical or electromechanoacoustical systems. Elements are the meshes. Of course.^ trical An elec- network is a connected set of separate circuits termed branches or A circuit may be defined as a physical entity in which varying magnitudes may be specified in terms of time and a single dimension. The branches or meshes are composed of elements. ^ The term "single dimension" implies that the movement or variation occurs along a path. constituent parts of a circuit. as for example. Acoustical systems in which the dimensions are small compared to the wavelength are vibrations in a single dimension. the system is If only a single variable said to have a single degree of freedom.

The Heaviside Operational Calculus

^^ '• ^

Heaviside's unextended problem is as follows: given a linear dynamical system of « degrees of freedom in a state of equilibrium, find its response when a unit force is applied at any point. The unit function, 1, depicted in Fig. 7.1, is defined to be a force which is zero for / < and unity for

The response of a dynamical system to a unit force is called the indicial admittance of the system. It is denoted by A(t). A{t) represents the current, linear velocity, angular velocity, or volume current when a unit electromotive force, force, torque or pressure is suddenly applied in a
system which was
initially at rest.
