Unformatted text preview: ments (BEAM3) Spring-Damper Elements (COMBIN14) Structural Mass Element (MASS21) Input Listing: vm52.dat Test Case An automobile suspension system is simplified to consider only two major motions of the system: • up and down linear motion of the body • pitching angular motion of the body If the body is idealized as a lumped mass with weight W and radius of gyration r, determine the corresponding coupled frequencies f1 and f2. Figure 52.1 Automobile Suspension Problem Sketch Material Properties E = 4 x 109 psf w = 3220 lb m = W/g = 100 lb-sec2/ft k1 = 2400 lb/ft k2 = 2600 lb/ft Geometric Properties 1 = 4.5 ft Loading g = 32.2 ft/sec2 = 5.5ft r = 4 ft 2 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes The beam geometric properties are input (all as unity) but not used for this solution. The torsional moment of inertia IT is calculated as IT = Wr2/g = 1600 lb-sec2-ft. A lateral master degree of freedom (MDOF) and a rotational MDOF are selected at the mass. The spring length is used only to define the spring direction. ANSYS Verification...
