When the frequency of that particular structure gets excited due to vibrations the TMD will resonate adjacent to its phase and move against the motion of the structure and thereby reducing its response. Then, the surplus energy that builds up in the structure due to the vibration can be transferred to the additional mass of the TMD and is released by the dashpot due to relative movement of the dashpot between them at a later Stage. The additional mass of the secondary system varies from 0.5-10% of the total dead load of the structure. When the structure vibrates due to earthquake, it contains a many number of frequencies, hence in recent day’s multiple tuned mass dampers (MTMD) has been adopted to reduce the motion induced
a. Simple Harmonic motion & Hook's Law i. Harmonic motion &Hook's Law Any motion that repeats itself in equal intervals of time is called periodic motion. A special form of periodic motion is called Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM). Simple Harmonic Motion is defined as oscillatory motion in which the resultant force on the oscillating body at any instant is directly proportional to its displacement from the rest position and opposite in direction to its motion. For a spring system, this can be written as F = -kx where F is the resultant force on the object attached to the spring, x is the displacement of the object from equilibrium, k is a constant called the spring constant.
Simple Harmonic Motion The world contains many laws of motion which help govern the world as we know it. Although most people are blind to these important laws, they impact almost every aspect of our lives. One of the most evident types of motion is periodic motion, or more specifically, simple harmonic motion. According to Britannica, simple harmonic motion is a “repetitive movement back and forth through an equilibrium, or central, position, so that the maximum displacement on one side of this position is equal to the maximum displacement on the other side” (The). Some examples of this interesting type of motion include a swing on the play set, the vibrating strings of a guitar, and the springs on a vehicle.
During the last decade, whole-body vibration (WBV) has been introduced for enhancing the force-generating capacity in humans based upon the application of sinusoidal vibrations to the body.5 Vibration exercise is a forced oscillation, in which energy transfer from an actuator (i.e. the vibration device) to a resonator (i.e. the human body, or parts of it). Application of vibration stimulation in sports use the principle that when vibration is applied to distal muscle it is transmitted to more proximal muscles helps improve athletes’ performance. Vibration therapy is a form of muscle training that is largely independent of the motivation of the patient.
Introduction: The process in which the rotating disturbing masses are equalized by using one or more balancing mass in same or different planes at specified angle and radius as per requirement. Why System Becomes Unbalanced? Balancing is very important in vibration analysis. If a disturbing mass is present in a rotating body, it will cause a centrifugal force acting outward form center of rotation. Therefore, it will cause fluctuations in body.
So if there is no resistance this system could act like simple harmonic motion, but there is resistance in the system which means without the force it is a damped system and because of this force it has to be classified as a forced oscillator. So all of the forces have to act in perfect harmony to keep the oscillating motion going or else this oscillator will no act like a forced oscillator and will act like a damped oscillator or a simple harmonic
The damping force is constant in magnitude but opposite in direction to that of the motion of the vibrating body. It either caused by friction between rubbing surfaces that are dry or have insufficient lubrication. The damping force is equal to the product of the normal force and the coefficient of friction and assumed independent of the velocity, once the motion initiated. 3.3 Structural Damping The damping caused by the friction between the internal planes that slip or slide as the material deforms called solid or structural damping. When the materials are deformed, energy is absorbed and dissipates by the material itself.
With a continuous monitoring, the changes in water content are indicative of estimating corrosion risk of reinforcement. An experiment of simulating the actual SHM operation by using capacitive sensors was conducted by Daniel B.& Claus F. (2006) in France and the application is described as below. The experiment aims to demonstrate the potential of using capacitive sensors in SHM. The experiment target was a bridge deck(fig.XX). A series of capacitive sensors was attached to the bridge deck.
Many important mechanical vibrations in tractors lie in the very high frequency range corresponding to rotation speed of 60-6000 rpm. Vibration describes the physical energy from a vibrating object, and also what we feel when that energy is transmitted to us. The main terms used to define this movement are “amplitude” and “frequency”. There are two of vibration occurs on Tractors operators : “segmental vibration” exposure, and “whole body vibration” exposure. Segmental vibration exposure refers to exposure that is mainly transmitted to, and concentrated on, a specific part of the body – such as the hand, arm, or leg.
