Vibrations of open-section channels: A coupled flexural and torsional wave analysis

An exact analytical method is presented for the analysis of forced vibrations of uniform, open-section channels. The centroid and the shear center of the channel cross-sections considered do not coincide; hence the flexural and the torsional vibrations are coupled. In the context of this study, the type of any existing coupling is defined in terms of the independent motions which are coupled through mass and/or stiffness terms. Hence, if the flexural vibrations in one direction are coupled with the torsional vibrations, the resulting coupling is called double-coupling. On the other hand, if the flexural vibrations in two mutually perpendicular directions and the torsional vibrations are all coupled, the resulting coupling is referred to as triple-coupling. The study also takes the effects of cross-sectional warping into consideration but, since it is derived from torsional characteristics, the warping is not treated as an independent motion. Wherever necessary, the admission of warping is characterized by the inclusion of warping constraint. The current work uses the wave propagation approach in constructing the analytical model. Single-point force excitation has been considered throughout and the channels are assumed to be pf Euler-Bernoulli beam type. Both double- and triple-coupling analyses are performed. The coupled wavenumbers, various frequency response curves and the mode shapes are presented for undamped and structurally damped channels. (C) 1997 Academic Press Limited.


Receptances of non proportionally and continuously damped plates Reduced dampers method
Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 1982-12-01)
This paper presents a method for the dynamic analysis of continuously and non-proportionally damped plates in bending modes. The damping can be in the form of constrained or unconstrained layers. The method is an extension of the equivalent dampers method discussed in a previous paper, in which the damping matrix of a discretized plate is replaced by a diagonal equivalent damping matrix. Each diagonal element represents an equivalent damper inserted between the structure and ground. In this method the numbe...

An analysis is presented for the torsional vibration characteristics of layered composite paraboloidal shells. The conditions for the uncoupling of the torsional modes from the bending and extensional modes are first determined for a layered shell of revolution. A finite difference scheme is developed for the solution of the resulting governing equation for the uncoupled torsional frequencies. The results of the finite difference solution for the paraboloids are compared with the analytical solution of unco...
Error analysis and feasibility study of dynamic stiffness matrix-based damping matrix identification
Özgen, Gökhan Osman (Elsevier BV, 2009-02-06)
Developing a method to formulate a damping matrix that represents the actual spatial distribution and mechanism of damping of the dynamic system has been an elusive goal. The dynamic stiffness matrix (DSM)-based damping identification method proposed by Lee and Kim is attractive and promising because it identifies the damping matrix from the measured DSM without relying on any unfounded assumptions. However, in ensuing works it was found that damping matrices identified from the method had unexpected forms ...

In this study dynamic mesh forces and dynamic factors in a geared shaft system are studied by using a continuous system model. The system consists of a gear pair, two shafts carrying gears, and two inertias representing drive and load in the system. A continuous system model is used to include the shaft inertias, which are usually disregarded even in most of the sophisticated models. The primary aim of this work is to provide a tool for studying the effect of shaft inertia in gear dynamics, and to present s...
Direct identification and expansion of damping matrix for experimental-analytical hybrid modeling
Özgen, Gökhan Osman (Elsevier BV, 2007-11-20)
The theory of direct experimental identification of damping matrix based on the dynamic stiffness matrix (DSM) method is further developed in this work. Based on the relationship between the DSMs of the smaller experimental model and larger analytical model, the mathematical relationship between the damping matrices of the two models is established. Examining the relationship, two methods are developed that can be used to expand the experimental damping matrix to the size of the analytical model. Validity o...
