ME163 Mechanical Vibrations (Winter 2009) Due Wednesday 2.4.09 7pm (in the box or to a TA) Worth 75 Extra Credit points Answers emailed by 9pm, midterm the day after 1. Consider the system in Fgure below, with m eff = 20 [kg], damping coe±cient c = 500 [Ns/m] and spring sti²ness k = 2000 [N/m]. Suppose the system is forced by a sinusoidal force f ( t ) = 350cos ωt . You may neglect gravity. (a) Derive the equation of motion for the length of the spring (ie the distance between the mass and the connection point for the spring/damper). (b) Calculate the steady state response of the spring length at ω = 10 [rad/s] using phasors. k m c f ME163 Mechanical Vibrations 1 HW4

2. A man of mass m m = 80 [kg] is walking on a tightrope of length = 5 [m] and mass m r = 10 [kg]. Trying to impress the crowd, the tightrope walker decides to stop at the middle of the rope, where the measured displacement in the y direction is Δ = 80 [cm]. Assume the rope is bending as a sinewave instead of a triangle). (a) Use the Rayleigh method to compute kinetic energy

The y-axis includes both the spring force and viscous force v/s displacement. Determine the eective damping and eective stiness for the system. In the experiment, the system was excited at a frequency = 8[ rad s ].
