Unformatted text preview: 4 Does this single degree of freedom equation remind you of anything? Both of these sets of equations describe how forcing functions (in space and time) excite uncoupled modes of vibration. M r [ ] p { } + C r [ ] p { } + K r [ ] p { } = [ ] T f { } Example f(x,t) 5 If we assume a forcing function, then we can arrive at the following set of equations: Example 6 The meaning of this solution, is that only modes like not are excited by a spatial forcing function like . Also, modes of vibration with natural frequencies, r , close to the forcing frequency, , are excited the most. Note the analogy to FRFs Numerator Denominator...
