Dechev STUDENT NAME: 39 N: it: {DUNS hr! _[ ’ STUDENT NUMBER: 0 3 '“ a 3:? 83 Open TextBook Exam: Only the course textbook and a non-communicating calculator are permitted. Start time: 7:00 pm End time: 10:00 pm There are a total of five (5) questions. Answer all questions. --------- ALL ANSWERS TO BE WRITTEN IN EXAMINATION BOOKLETS ONLY _--____._ Fall Term 2006 MECH 330 — Machine Dynamics Question #1: [20%] Consider the mechanical system illustrated in Fig. Q1. All of the masses in the diagram are restricted to horizontal motion along the x-axis. Please answer the following questions: M ) How many degrees of freedom does this system have? [/(Z) 011 the diagram, draw in a set of “generalized coordinates” with directions of action, to describe the motion of the system. Remember to use the minimum number of generalized coordinates. [/68 Derive the differential equations for this system using the “Free Body Diagram Method”, and write them out in matrix format. Figure Q1. Question #2: [10%] Consider an n-DOF mechanical system consisting of x masses, y springs and z dampers. The mechanical system is subjected to an external excitation force in the form of Fosin(mt) acting on one of the masses. L/(a) How many natural frequencies does this system have? L/(b) What is the significance if the excitation frequency is equal to one of the natural frequencies? do) Is it a benefit or a problem if the scenario described in (b) occurs? Justify your answer. Fall Term 2006 MECH 330 — Machine Dynamics Question #3: [30%] Consider the motorcycle illustrated in Fig. Q3. It consists of the body of mass m, with the mass center located at point A, along with two sets of springs and dampers, k}, kg, (:1, (:2. Notice that the springs and dampers are at an angle with respect to the vertical. a) Draw a ‘simplified’ block diagram to model the system in 2-DOF. Use one DOF to model the 1/ vertical bounce motion of the body, and the other DOF for the rotational pitch motion. You can ignore the mass and elasticity of the tires. You can approximate the springs and dampers , by considering only their ‘vertical action” on the body. k/(b) Derive the differential equations for the system using the “Energy Method” using Lagrange’s Equations These equations should be written in terms of L}, L2, in, 162, c 1, (:2, and m and your chosen generalized coordinates. For the next part, assume the following parameters for the motorcycle. L; =0.75m, L2=l.25m, kg=5000 Nim, k2=3000 N/m, ci=1000 N's/m, c3=500 N'sfm, and m=500 kg. (0) Determine the natural frequencies and normal mode. shapes for this system. (d) If a vertical excitation force F (t)=100'sin(500t) N at L3 = 0.25 m is applied at point B, by how much do the natural frequencies of the system change? Figure Q3. Fall Term 2006 MECH 330 - Machine Dynamics Question #4: [15%] Fig. Q4 illustrates a diagram of a three-floor radio tower. Each floor is supported by four ‘ Posts”, each of which have a length L and stiffness 160,050. Additionally, the middle floor of the tower is restrained by two support wires of stiffness km”), angled at 70° to the ground, as shown. (a) Draw a ‘ simplified’ block diagram to model the system in 3-DOF. You can assume that motion of the floors will only occur in the y-direction. (b) Use the ‘stiffness influence coefficient method’ to determine the stiffness matrix for this system. Post Cross—Section Figure Q4. Question #5: [25%] Consider the radio tower of Figure Q4. Wind acting on the top floor can be approximated as a sinusoidal force Fm =800'sin(30t) N. For the system, assume the following parameters: m; =6000 kg , m2 =3000 kg , m3 =1000 kg 1415“,,”J =10 m , Erma”) =2x109N/m2 kmm = 1x106 N/m The stiffness of a post in the fixed-fixed configuration is given as: IZEH L3. The moment of inertia of a post is given as: bid/12 Answer the following questions 6a) Write out the differential equations of this system in matrix format- (13) Determine the natural frequencies and normal mode shapes of this system. ~/(’c) Determine the orthonormal mode shapes and the orthonormal modal matrix for the system. (d) Use ‘Modal Analysis’ to find the “time dependant response”, in the original generalized coordinates (i.e. ynm for n=1 to 3). ...

    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.
