Introduction it is desired to compare an unfamiliar system known. an electrical circuit may be considered to be a vibrating system. Almost any work involving mechanical or acoustical systems includes electrical systems and electrical circuit theory. The equations of electrical circuit theory may be based on Maxwell's dynamical theory in which the currents play the role of velocities. at the present time electrical circuit theory has been developed to a much tems.

Acoustical systems in which the dimensions are small compared to the wavelength are vibrations in a single dimension. various assemblies of masses. In the same way the coefficients in the differential equations of theory is use of the terms "circuit" and "network" in the literature is not estabThe term "circuit" is often used to designate a network with several branches. The mechanical engineer is interested in the development of various mechanisms or vibrating systems involving masses. . cal. When the based upon Maxwell's dynamics the network forms a dynamical system in which the currents play the role of velocities. The branches or meshes are composed of elements. In a field problem there is variation in two or three dimensions. this operational method can be applied to any analytically similar system. Electrical circuit theory is the branch of electromagnetic theory which deals with electrical oscillations in linear electrical networks. Electrical elements are resistance. The number of independent variables required to completely specify is the motion of every part of a vibrating system a measure of the is number needed of degrees of freedom of the system. Mathematically the elements electric circuit in an electrical network are the coeffi- cients in the differential equations describing the network. springs and brakes. induct- ance and capacitance. constituent parts of a circuit.^ 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.

Vibrations in one dimension occur in mechanical systems made up of mechanical elements. In an electrical circuit the number of degrees of freedom is equal to the number of independent closed meshes or circuits. ^ The term "single dimension" implies that the movement or variation occurs along a path. the system is If only a single variable said to have a single degree of freedom. springs and friction.

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.

In the Heaviside calculus the differential equations are reduced to an algebraic form by replacing the operator dj dt by the operator p and the
operation / dt by 1/^.

Tables of operational formulas have been com-

Mechanical Ohm. mechanical rotational and acoustical ohms have been defined in the tables on pages 21. reactance or impedance is said to have a magnitude of one mechanical ohm when a force of one dyne produces a velocity of one centimeter per second. These uncontrolled oscillations require the introduction of some form of damping for reducing the amplitude. A system has been developed in the form of the hydraulic shock absorber. Electrical abohm. A further improvement in riding qualities has been obtained by the use of better designed cushions. All of these may be analyzed by the use of analogies. In these cases the information on transients in electrical circuits may be applied to the mechanical system as outlined in Chapter VII. reactance or impedance is said to have a magnitude of one acoustical ohm when a pressure of one dyne per square centimeter produces a volume current of one cubic centimeter per second. To avoid any possibility of ambiguity. An electrical resistance. reactance or impedance is said to have a magnitude of one rotational ohm when a torque of one dyne centimeter produces an angular velocity of one radian per second. an appropriate ratio of compliance of the vibration problems in an automobile may be solved by the use of analogies. Both of these expedients have improved the riding qualities as can be seen from a consideration of the mechanical network of Fig. which controls the oscillations. pitching or swaying motion. The individual effects may be superposed and the gross effect of all vibrations obtained.
