Problems and Solutions Section 8.4 (8.34 through 8.43) 8.34 Refer to the tapered bar of Figure P8.13. Calculate a lumped-mass matrix for this system and compare it to the solution of Problem 8.13. Since the beam is tapered, be careful how you divide up the mass. Solution: The lumped mass at node 2 should be the total mass between x = .25 and x = .75. Therefore M 2 = 2700 π 4 .25 .75 η 1 2 + η 2 - η 1 λ 2 ξ 2 + 2 η 1 η 2 - η 1 λ ξ δξ = 26.5 likewise for node 3 M 3 = 2700 π 4 .75 1 η 1 2 + η 2 - η 1 λ 2 ξ 2 + 2 η 1 η 2 - η 1 λ ξ δξ = 7.289 The mass matrix is then M = 26.5 0 0 7.289 and the natural frequencies are ϖ 1 = 6670 rad/s and ϖ 2 = 13106 rad/s. For the distributed mass system ϖ 1 = 7414 rad/s and ϖ 2 = 20368 rad/s. The first natural frequency found by the distributed mass model is slightly better than the lumped mass model when compared to the three element distributed mass model derived in problem 13. 8.35 Calculate and compare the natural frequencies obtained for a tapered bar by using first, the consistent-mass matrix (Problem 8.12), and second, the lumped-mass matrix (Problem 8.34). Solution: See solution for Problem 8.34.

8.36 Consider again the machine punch of Problem 8.16 and Figure P8.15. Calculate the natural frequencies of this system using a lumped-mass matrix and compare the results to those obtained with the consistent-mass matrix.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
