Structure A structure is a combination of parts fastened together to create a supporting framework, which may be part of a building, ship, machine, space vehicle, engine or some other system. Vibrations


Cause Effect



Stage I. Devise a mathematical or physical model of

the structure to be analysed.

Stage II. From the model, write the equations of

Stage III. Evaluate the structure response to a relevant

specific excitation.

The Vibration Of Structures With One Degree Of Freedom

FREE UNDAMPED VIBRATION Translation vibration

Torsional vibration

Energy methods for analysis

For undamped free vibration the total energy in the vibrating system is

constantthroughout the cycle. Therefore the maximum potential energy V(max), is equal to the maximum kinetic energy T(max) , although these maxima occur at different times during the cycle of vibration. Furthermore, since the total energy is constant,

T + V = constant,
d(T + V)/dt = 0 = (k/m)1/2 Condition of stability


The most common types of damping are
Viscous dry friction hysteretic

Vibration with viscous Damping

Case 1 less than 1, that is, damping less than critical The motion of the body is therefore an exponentially decaying

harmonic oscillation
Case 2 = 1; that is, critical damping Critical damping represents the limit of periodic motion; hence

the displaced body isrestored to equilibrium in the shortest possible time, and without oscillation or overshoot.
Case 3 greater than critical, Since both values of s are negative the motion is the sum of two

exponential decays

Vibration with Coulomb (dry friction) damping

Equation Of Motion - m = Fd kx

Vibration with hysteretic damping

Experiments on the damping that occurs in solid

materials and structures that have been subjected to cyclic stressing have shown the damping force to be independent of frequency internal, or material, damping is referred to as hysteretic damping. the induced stress is = 0sin (Vt+ )

The equation of motion is

X/Xs is known as the dynamic magnification factor

The phenomenon known as resonance occurs when

the forcing frequency is equal to the natural frequency, that is when v/ = 1. The maximum value of X/Xs actually occurs at values of v/ less than unity:

Vibration Isolation
The force transmitted to the foundation is the sum of

the spring force and the damper force. Thus the transmitted force = kx + c and Fx the amplitude of the transmitted force is given by

Response of a Coulomb damped structure to a simple harmonic exciting force with constant amplitude
The equation of motion is non-linear because the

constant friction force F, always opposes the motion:

Response of a structure to a suddenly applied Force

The equation of motion can be written

If the structure possesses viscous damping of

coefficient c, the solution to the equation of motion is

Shock excitation
Some structures are subjected to shock or impulse

loads arising from suddenly applied, non-periodic, short-duration exciting forces.

X(t) =

Wind- or current-excited oscillation

A structure exposed to a fluid stream is subjected to a

harmonically varying force in a direction perpendicular to the stream. This is because of eddy, or vortex, shedding on alternate sides of the structure on the leeward side.

the spring force and the damper force. Motion Transmission TR = X/A =
