Unformatted text preview: Vibration Joshua Sill Group 8B MAE 244 Sec 4 : Chuanyu Feng 9/22/05 Introduction This lab is designed to give an understanding of how vibration works. The setup consists of a carriage that slides at low friction. Mass is added to the carriage and then attached to a spring. When the carriage is pushed forward and then let go, it creates vibrations that eventually stop. A computer program is used to measure the displacement of the carriage at a certain time. Using the graphs, a wide variety of information can be found about the vibration such as its amplitude and natural frequency. In the experiment there will be a variety of values calculated in the Table A. The carriage can also be hooked up to a damping device that will cause the vibration to stop significantly slower than it would normally. The values for this can also be calculated using the information from the graphs provided by the computer readout. The experiment will be performed using different masses, spring constants, and then some with and without damping.
