Single degree-of-freedom system dynamics using teleoperation
Objective: Observe transient and forced vibrations in a simple system.
Background: The single degree-of-freedom (SDOF) system consists of a mass-spring
system (one story building) which is drive

THEORY AND EXPERIMENTAL METHODS
The Theory:
In this section we develop the formulas for a circular shaft under torsion.
To build up our model, we make the following assumption:
1. The length of the shaft is significantly larger than the dimension in the c

Conclusion
In the B scale, it is shown that the hardness of tested materials in a decreasing scequence is brass
> copper > aluminium > steel. In the C scale, tool steel is measured with an average value of 65.6.
The B scale uses 100Kgf and the C scale use
