Modal Characteristics Of A Vibrating Truss, Edd Leighman Ghent Jr. Jan 1966

Modal Characteristics Of A Vibrating Truss, Edd Leighman Ghent Jr.

Masters Theses

"In this thesis, a complete technique is presented for the vibration analysis of any planar structure which can be classified in the broad category of trusses or frames. Although a theoretical backdrop is included for the' sake of completeness, the intent is to provide a technique that is readily adapted to computer usage and can be handled with a minimum of confusion or misunderstanding.

The problem is solved by the use of a displacement technique wherein the inertia and stiffness properties of a structure are calculated by superimposing the contributions of each component of the structure. The calculation of these ...
