In this procedure the mechanical or acoustical vibrating system is converted into the analogous electrical circuit. The subject matter is developed in stages from the simple element through to comrectilineal. The relations and actions are more easily visualized. plex arrangements of multielement systems. The problem is then reduced to the simple solution of This method has been used by acoustical engineers twenty years in the development of all types of electroMechanical engineers have begun to use the same procedure for analyzing the action of mechanisms.

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. By means of analogies the knowledge in electrical circuits may be applied to the solution of problems in mechanical and acoustical systems. By means is of may be compared with one that better known. Accordingly this book has been written with the object of presenting the principles of dynamical analogies to the for the past acoustic transducers.

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/^.

piled which serve for operational calculus the
