Response to Harmonic Excitation Part 2: Damped systems

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
This module continues the analysis of the response of a single-degree-of-freedom system to harmonic excitation by including the effects of viscous damping. The corresponding equations of motion are developed and concepts such as resonance, phase shift and steady-state response for damped systems are discussed. Numerical examples, interactive plots, and steps to create MapleSim simulations are included to enhance the learning experience. Keywords & Topics:
Oscillations, damped harmonic excitation, sine forcing function, cosine forcing function, resonance, normalized amplitude, phase, steady-state response
Main Topic: Intro to Vibrations
