Two Dimensional Analysis of Vibration Isolation of Rigid Bar Supported by Buckled or Pre-bent Struts
MetadataShow full item record
Because the purpose of the struts is to reduce unwanted vibrations, determining the displacement transmissibility of the system is the main goal of this research. Transmissibility versus frequency plots are generated for all cases, with varying parameters such as stiffness, damping, and location of center of mass, to determine how they affect the behavior of the struts. Models that produce a large range of frequencies at which the transmissibility is well below unity are the most effective. Vibration shapes are also determined for certain frequencies so that the physical behavior of the system can be studied.
