The beam in Figure 2.26 vibrates as a result of loading not shown. State the necessary assumptions to reduce this problem to a one degree-of-freedom oscillator. Then derive the equation of motion. Figure 2.26: Vibrating beam supported by springs. Solution: In order for the system to be approximated by a one DOF oscillator, one spatial coordi- nate is required to de&amp;ne its displacement. We need to assume that (i) the beam does not deform but moves as a rigid body, and (ii) the deection at each end of the beam is the same, implying a symmetric loading (or only a moment is applied and the rotation at one end is equal and opposite to that at the other end). Under these limitations, a SDOF system can be used to model the behavior of this beam. Let F ( t ) be the external force acting upward on the beam. Then, using Newtons second law, + &quot; X F vertical = F ( t ) &amp; 2 kx = m d 2 x dt 2 giving the equation of motion m d 2 x dt 2 + 2 kx = F ( t ) : The system has the natural frequency ! n = p 2 k=m: 1 8 CHAPTER 2 SDOF VIBRATION: AN INTRODUCTION 6. For each idealized model in Figures 2.30 to 2.33, draw a free-body diagram and derive the equation of motion using (a) Newton&amp;s second law of motion and (b) the energy method. The block in Figure 2.31 slides on a frictionless surface. State whether the oscillations are linear or nonlinear. Determine the natural frequency of each model. Figure 2.30: Oscillating mass. Figure 2.31: Sliding oscillation of mass. Figure 2.32: A simple pendulum. Figure 2.33: Torsional vibration. Solution: Fig.2.30 For an oscillator vibrating in the gravitational direction x , about static equi- librium, we have + !
