Problems and Solutions Section 8.5 (8.44 through 8.49) 8.44 Derive a consistent-mass matrix for the system of Figure 8.9. Compare the natural frequencies of this system with those calculated with the lumped-mass matrix computed in Section 8.5. Solution: Using the vibration toolbox M = ρΑλ .6857 0 0 .7238 The natural frequencies are then ϖ 1 = .8311 1 l E r and w 1 =1.479 1 l E r These are higher than those predicted with the inconsistent mass matrix 8.45 Consider the two beam system of Figure P8.45. Use VTB8_1 to create a two- element, rod/beam element model and compute the first three natural frequencies. Use A = 0.0004 m 2 , I = 1.33 × 10 -8 m 4 , and the properties of aluminum. Assume that nodes 1 and 3 are clamped. Solution: %scipt file for problem 8.45 node=[0 0;1 .5;2 1;1 1.5;0 2]; ncon=[1 2 69e10 .004 1.33e-8 0 2700; 2 3 69e10 .004 1.33e-8 0 2700; 3 4 69e10 .004 1.33e-8 0 2700; 4 5 69e10 .004 1.33e-8 0 2700]; zero=[1 1; 1 2; 1 3; 5 1; 5 2; 5 3]; conm=[]; force=[]; save VTB8_45.con Running this yields that the first three natural frequencies are given as 377.5, 8763.7 and 10951.2 rad/s.

    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.
