A Study Of The Problems Of Design Of Optimum Vibration Absorbers For Multi-Mass Systems, James C. Villegas Jan 1962

A Study Of The Problems Of Design Of Optimum Vibration Absorbers For Multi-Mass Systems, James C. Villegas

Masters Theses

"The purpose of this investigation was to continue the preliminary work of Burrows on the application of tuned and damped vibration absorbers to the reduction of vibratory stresses in a multi-mass torsional vibration system. A hypothetical engine system was chosen for both investigations because it had many complicating factors and gave an eminently practical subject for study.

Attention was centered on the reduction of stresses resulting at higher speeds of the machine system and on developing methods and criteria for the designing of effective absorbers where several modes of vibration exist in the operating speed range of the machine"--Abstract ...

Preliminary Study Of An Optimum Vibration Absorber For A Multi-Mass System With Multiple Excitation, John Raymond Burrows

Masters Theses

"The object of this thesis is to demonstrate, by the use of a modern digital computer, a fast, efficient method to eliminate or minimize undesirable stress conditions in a multimass vibrating system with multiple excitation. The condition desired is obtained by the addition of an optimum tuned and damped dynamic vibration absorber, for one critical speed only.

Maximum stress is the criteria used for design here and not amplitude as has been used previously by all other authors.

This solution requires the applied torque to be reevaluated as an average torque and a number of half integer harmonics. This method ...
