Some predicted a final elastic vibration between negative displacement limits (implying a final displacement in the direction opposite to the load), while others predicted positive limits.
To this diagram, the following comments can be made: In the case of small initial displacements the beam material remains elastic and the beam carries out elastic vibrations around the equilibrium position w = 0; the curves (a) and (b) coincide.
Radiation conditions of elastic vibration frequency and ultrasonic sound in a liquid are more favorable than in a gaseous environment.
The Pusher Centrifuge SZ is quick and easy to install, being placed directly onto elastic vibration dampers which means that a vibration foundation is not required.
In addition to the inertia force caused by the rigid body motion of a flexible mechanism, the inertia force due to the elastic vibration of flexible links plays an important role in the dynamics of flexible mechanisms and so should be eliminated.
Experimental setup was designed and made to investigate part alignment when elastic vibrations were applied to the peg (Fig.
The smallest axis misalignment at which is still appropriate to use elastic vibrations for the mutual part alignment is 0.
The vibrators are attached to the plate and excited by the frequency, aiming to cause elastic vibrations of the plate.
One of the being assembled parts may be excited by the low frequency vibrations, causing the part to vibrate like a solid body, or elastic vibrations of the part may be forced.
Each part of the platform is excited by autonomous high frequency (piezoceramic) vibrators, causing elastic vibrations of the mentioned parts.
