53 58153 Lecture 1 Fundamental of Vibration Lecture 1 Introduction Reading materials Sections 11 16 1 Introduction 1 People became interested in Vibration when the first musical instruments probably whistles or drums were discovered ID Most human activities involve vibration in one form or other For example we hear because our eardrums vibrate and see because light waves undergo vibration i Any motion that repeats itself after an interval of time is called vibration or oscillation ID The general terminology of Vibration is used to describe oscillatory motion of mechanical and structural systems 10 The Vibration of a system involves the transfer of its potential energy to kinetic energy and kinetic energy to potential energy alternately 1 The terminology of Free Vibration is used for the study of natural vibration modes in the absence external loading ID The terminology of Forced Vibration is used for the study of motion as a result of loads that vary rapidly with time Loads that vary rapidly with time are called dynamic loads 49 If no energy is lost or dissipated in friction or other resistance during oscillation the vibration is known as undamped vibration If any energy is lost in this way however is called damped vibration C If the system is damped some energy is dissipated in each cycle of vibration and must be replaced by an external source if a state of steady vibration is to be maintained 53 58153 Lecture 1 Fundamental of Vibration 2 Branches of Mechanics an Rigid bodies Statics amp Dynamics Kinematics amp Dynamics of Mechanical Systems I Fluid mechanics D Deformable bodies Structural analysis assuming loads do not change over time or change very slowly Vibrations or Dynamic analysis considering more general case when loads vary with time Finite element analysis a powerful numerical method for both static and dynamic analysis 10 Vibration analysis procedure Step 1 Mathematical modeling Step 2 Derivation of governing equations Step 3 Solution of the governing equations Step 4 Interpretation of the results 3 Other Basic Concepts of Vibration 1D A vibratory system in general includes a means for storing potential energy spring or elasticity a means for storing kinetic energy mass or inertia and a means by which energy is gradually lost damper ID The minimum number of independent coordinates required to determine completely the positions of all parts of a system at any instant of time defines the degree of freedom DOF of the system Examples 5358153 Lecture 1 Fundamental of Vibration A large number of practical systems can be described using a nite number of DOFs Systems with a nite number of DOFs are called discrete or lumped parameter systems 1 Some systems especially those involving continuous elastic members have an in nite number of DOFs Those systems are called continuous or distributed systems 4 Plane truss example Matrix method fl 1 15 4 10 5 o ic m 0 5 10 15 20 D Element equations 395 Global equations Boundary conditions a

Vibration 7 Importance of dynamic analysis I Load magnification amp Fatigue effects ID A static load is constant and is applied to the structure for a considerable part of its life For example the self weight of building Loads that are repeatedly exerted but are applied and removed very slowly are also considered static loads CD Fatigue phenomenon can be caused by repeated application of the load The number of cycles is usually low and hence this type of loading may cause what is known as lowcycle fatigue 10 Quasistatic loads are actually due to dynamic phenomena but remain constant for relatively long periods In Most mechanical and structural systems are subjected to loads that actually vary over time Each system has a characteristic time to determine whether the load can be considered static quasistatic or dynamic This characteristic time is the fundamental period of ee vibration of the system VD Dynamic Load Magnification factor DLF is the ratio of the maximum dynamic force experienced by the system and the maximum applied load I The small period of vibration results in a small DLF ID Fatigue phenomenon can be caused by repeated application of the load The number of cycles and the stress range are important factors in determining the fatigue life 5358153 Lecture 1 Fundamental ofVibration 8 Types of Vibratory Motion 0 Oscillaton motion may repeat itself regularly as in the case ofa simp e endulum or it may display considerable irregularity as in the case ofground motion during an earthquake 0 If the motion is repeated after equal intervals of time it is called periodic motion The simplest type of periodic motion is harmonic motion 0 Harmonic motion It is described by sine or cosine functions xi Asinw t A is the amplitude while a is the frequency
