NonLinear Interactions Of Acoustic Fields With Plates Under Harmonic Excitations, A. Nayfeh, S. Kelly
NonLinear Interactions Of Acoustic Fields With Plates Under Harmonic Excitations, A. Nayfeh, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
The method of renormalization is used to determine a uniformly valid expansion for the problem of nonlinear interactions of acoustic fields with plates under harmonic excitations. The expansion obtained is in agreement with that obtained by Ginsberg, who used the method of strained coordinates to render the potential uniform and then used the method of renormalization to render the nonuniform pressure and velocity components calculated from the resulting potential uniform.
Stress Response Of A Rubber Block With Frictional Contact Under Axial Loading, J. Suh, S. Kelly
Stress Response Of A Rubber Block With Frictional Contact Under Axial Loading, J. Suh, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
Rubber blocks (or springs) are structural components widely used in many applications. Design characteristics of a rubber block under axial loading are an apparent modulus (or compression modulus) and normal and shear stresses on contact surfaces. These are affected by a contact condition of the rubber block in contact with two rigid plates and the shape of the block. The problem of a rubber block bonded to two rigid plates has been solved using various approaches. In contrast, for a rubber block whose one surface is bonded to a rigid plate and the other surface in contact with a frictional ...

Fundamentals Of Mechanical Vibrations, S. Kelly
Fundamentals Of Mechanical Vibrations, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
This text is designed for undergraduate courses in vibrations taught in departments of mechanical engineering. It provides detailed explanations of fundamental aspects of vibrations such as the derivation of differential equations, covers physical interpretation of phenomena using energy methods, and includes chapters on vibration control and nonlinear vibrations. Detailed coverage of the equivalent systems method allows modelling of all onedegreeoffreedom linear systems by a massspringdashpot system.
NonLinear Propagation Of Directional Spherical Waves, S. Kelly, A. Nayfeh
NonLinear Propagation Of Directional Spherical Waves, S. Kelly, A. Nayfeh
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
The method of renormalization is used to determine a uniformly valid expansion for the problem of nonlinear waves produced in a fluid by spatially nonuniform simple harmonic motion of the surface of a sphere. The effect of dimensionless quantities upon the acoustic shockformation distance is examined.
NonLinear Propagation Of General Directional Spherical Waves, S. Kelly, A. Nayfeh
NonLinear Propagation Of General Directional Spherical Waves, S. Kelly, A. Nayfeh
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
The method of renormalization is used to determine a uniformly valid expansion for the problem of nonlinear waves produced in a fluid by the general harmonic pulsations of a sphere. For a uniform expansion, only the radial distance needs to be strained. The effect of dimensionless quantities upon the shockformation distance is examined.
Mechanics Of Rubber Shear Springs, A. Gent, J. Suh, S. Kelly
Mechanics Of Rubber Shear Springs, A. Gent, J. Suh, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
FEA calculations have been carried out for a model rubber shear spring, consisting of a block of a highly elastic material, bonded between two rigid parallel plates and sheared by displacing one of the plates parallel to the other in its own plane. The block was prevented from deforming in the perpendicular direction, and thus was deformed in plane strain. Stress distributions along the bondline and the centerline are reported and compared with those expected from the theory of large elastic deformations. Unexpected tensile stresses were found to develop in the interior of the sheared block. They are attributed to ...

Free Vibrations Of Elastically Connected Stretched Beams, S. Kelly, Shirish Srinivas
Free Vibrations Of Elastically Connected Stretched Beams, S. Kelly, Shirish Srinivas
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
A general theory for the determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes for a set of elastically connected axially loaded Eulerâ€“Bernoulli beams is developed. A normalmode solution is applied to a set of nondimensional coupled partial differential equations. The natural frequencies are the eigenvalues of a matrix of differential operators. The matrix operator is shown to be selfadjoint leading to an orthogonality condition for the mode shapes. In the special case of identical beams, it is shown that the natural frequencies are organized into sets of intramodal frequencies in which each mode shape is a product of a spatial ...

Free And Forced Vibrations Of Elastically Connected Structures, S. Kelly
Free And Forced Vibrations Of Elastically Connected Structures, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
A general theory for the free and forced responses of elastically connected parallel structures is developed. It is shown that if the stiffness operator for an individual structure is selfadjoint with respect to an inner product defined for , then the stiffness operator for the set of elastically connected structures is selfadjoint with respect to an inner product defined on . This leads to the definition of energy inner products defined on . When a normal mode solution is used to develop the free response, it is shown that the natural frequencies are the square roots of the eigenvalues of an operator that ...
Shear Of Rubber Tube Springs, J. Suh, A. Gent, S. Kelly
Shear Of Rubber Tube Springs, J. Suh, A. Gent, S. Kelly
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
Rubber tube springs consist basically of cylindrical rubber tubes bonded on their inner and outer curved surfaces to rigid cylindrical tubes. They are widely used as flexible linkages, for example in vehicle suspensions. Rotation of one rigid tube with respect to the other about their common axis subjects the rubber tube to azimuthal shear. Displacement of one rigid tube with respect to the other along their common axis puts the rubber tube into axial shear. Using FEA, we have calculated the stresses set up in both cases, for a long rubber tube of a nonlinearly elastic (neoHookean) material. The results ...

NonLinear Propagation Of Directional Cylindrical Waves, S. Kelly, A. Nayfeh
Dr. S. Graham Kelly
The method of renormalization is used to determine a uniformly valid expansion for the problem of nonlinear waves produced in a fluid by the harmonic pulsations of a finite circular cylinder. For a uniform expansion, both the radial and axial distances need to be strained. The effect of dimensionless quantities upon the acoustic shockformation distance is examined. The results show that the wave produced consists of a number of groups that propagate without any mutual interaction.
