Dynamic Response Of A Simply Supported Beam To An Accelerating Point Load, Joseph Victor Cusumano Jan 1967

Dynamic Response Of A Simply Supported Beam To An Accelerating Point Load, Joseph Victor Cusumano

Masters Theses

"An analysis based on linear theory is presented for determining the dynamic response of a simply supported beam on an elastic foundation acted upon by a moving time dependent point force with axial forces included. This thesis extends the present theory to include an analysis of a point force accelerating uniformly across the beam. In particular, it is shown that the customary resonance conditions which are prevalent for a point force moving with uniform velocity no longer exist for the case of a point force accelerating uniformly across the beam.

The basic problem and its solution are presented for a ...
