Unformatted text preview: er. Supposed that this container, with a missile inside, is fixed
on a truck, where the longitudinal orientation of the
container is parallel to the direction of the motion of the
truck. As the container is fixed to the truck, there will be
no relative motion between the truck and the container, but
because of the shock absorbing packing material the missile may move relative to the
container with response to the acceleration or deceleration of the truck.
Assume that the packing material at each end can be modeled as a linear elastic element with
stiffness constant k and damping ratio b .
• Derive a transfer function between the longitudinal motion of the truck, xtruck, and the
relative motion of the missile with respect to the container, xrel. xtruck xrel b b k k ME304/Spring 2008/Section 03/HW2 2...
