Transmissibility of Bending Vibration of an Elastic Beam


Journal Article

Copyright © 2018 by ASME. This paper proposes an isolation transmissibility for the bending vibration of elastic beams. At both ends, the elastic beam is considered with vertical spring support and free to rotate. The geometric nonlinearity is considered. In order to implement the Galerkin method, the natural modes and frequencies of the bending vibration of the beam are analyzed. In addition, for the first time, the elastic continuum supported by boundary springs is solved by direct numerical method, such as the finite difference method (FDM). Moreover, the detailed procedure of FDM processing boundary conditions and initial conditions is presented. Two numerical approaches are compared to illustrate the correctness of the results. By demonstrating the significant impact, the necessity of elastic support at the boundaries to the vibration isolation of elastic continua is explained. Compared with the vibration transmission with one-term Galerkin truncation, it is proved that it is necessary to consider the high-order bending vibration modes when studying the force transmission of the elastic continua. Furthermore, the numerical examples illustrate that the influences of the system parameters on the bending vibration isolation. This study opens up the research on the vibration isolation of elastic continua, which is of profound significance to the analysis and design of vibration isolation for a wide range of practical engineering applications.
