Vibration is defined as a motion which repeats after equal interval of time and is
also a periodic motion.The swinging of a pendulum is a simple example of
vibration.Vibration occurs in all bodies which are having mass and elasticity. They are
caused due to several reasons such as presence of unbalanced force in rotating machines,
elastic nature of the system, external application of force or wind loads and earthquakes.
Vibrations are undesirable as they induce high stresses in system components leading to
noise and failure, in such cases they are to be minimized if not totally eliminated.. The
desirable effects are seen in musical instruments and cement compactors used in
construction work.
From subject point of view the following notations and definitions are very
Periodic Motion:
It is a motion which repeats itself after equal intervals of time, e.g., the
oscillations of simple pendulum
Time Period (T) :
It is the time required for one complete cycle or to and fro motion.The unit is
Frequency (f or ω) :
It is the number of cycles per unit time. The unit are radians/sec. or Hz.
Amplitude (X or A) :
It is the displacement of a vibrating body from its equilibrium position. It has
units of length in general
Natural Frequency (fn):
www.bookspar.com | VTU NOTES


It is the frequency with which a body vibrates when subjected to an initial
external disturbance and allowed to vibrate without external force being applied
Fundamental Mode of Vibration:
A vibrating body may have more than one natural frequency and when it vibrates
with the lowest natural frequency ,it is the Fundamental mode of vibration.

Degrees of Freedom:
It is the minimum number of coordinates required to describe the motion of
system. Typically in our discussions 1DOF system will have one mass, e.g., a spring
attached with one mass , 2 DOF system will have two masses and likewise we have
3DOFsystem. A continuous system like a beam or plate consisting of infinite number of
particles with mass, are systems with infinite number of DOF.
Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM):
It is a periodic motion with acceleration always directed towards the equilibrium
position. It can also be defined as projection of motion of a particle along a circle with
uniform angular velocity on the diameter of circle.
It is the resistance offered to the motion of a vibrating body by absorbing the
energy of vibrations. Such vibrations are termed as damped vibrations
Forced Vibrations:
It is the vibration of a body when subjected to an external force which is periodic
in nature and vibrations occur as long as external force is present.
It is said to occur in the system when the amplitude of vibrations are excessive
leading to failure. This occurs in forced vibrations when the frequency of externally
applied force is same as that of natural frequency of the body.
Linear and Non Linear Vibrations:
When the vibrations are represented by linear differential equations and laws of
superposition are applicable for the system, we have Linear systems. Non linear

are experienced when large amplitudes are encountered and laws of superposition are not
www.bookspar.com | VTU NOTES



Longitudinal, Transverse and Torsional Vibrations:
When the motion of mass of the system is parallel to the axis of the system, we
have Longitudinal vibrations. When the motion of mass is perpendicular to the system
axis the vibrations are Transverse vibrations and when the mass twists and untwists
about the axis the vibrations are Torsional vibrations. Up and down motion of mass in a
spring mass system represents Longitudinal vibrations. Vibration of a cantilever beam
represents Transverse vibrations. The twisting and untwisting of a disc attached at the end
of a shaft represents Torsional vibrations.
Vector representation of SHM:
Any SHM can be represented as by the equation , x = A Sinωt ---(1) , where x is
the displacement , A is the amplitude , ω is the circular frequency and t is the time.
Differentiating eqn.1 w.r.t. t we have velocity vector and differentiating eqn 1
twice we have the acceleration vector. If x1 and x2 are two displacement vectors with
same frequencies then the phase difference between them is given by φ.

Session 2 date : (28/2/07)
Principle of Superposition:
When two SHM of same frequencies are added the resulting motion is also a
harmonic motion. Consider two harmonic motions x1 = A1Sinωt and x2 = A2 Sin(ωt +
φ) . Then if x is the resultant displacement , x = x1 + x2. The resultant amplitude x = A
Sin (ωt +θ), where A is the resultant amplitude and is acting at an angle θ w.r.t vector x1.
The above addition of SHMs can also be done graphically.
Sample Problems:
1) Add the following harmonics analytically and check the solution graphically
x1= 3Sin (ωt + 30◦) , x2 = 4 Cos(ωt +10◦)
Given : x1= 3Sin (ωt + 30◦) , x2 = 4 Cos(ωt +10◦)

The complete solution for the unbalanced system is x = A2e –ξωnt (sinωd t + Φ2 ) + (moew2 /k)/(√(1-(ω 2/ωn 2 )2 + (2ξω/ ωn )2 ) The following points are concluded for unbalanced system: • • • • • • Damping factor plays an important role in controlling the amplitudes during resonance. For low values of frequency ratio. At high speeds of operation. For low values of frequency ratio (w/wn). These elements isolate the www. damping effects are negligible. At resonance. because the inertia force is small.(w/wn )2 ) Same analysis is extended to reciprocating masses where exciting force becomes moew2sinwt where mo = Unbalanced mass of reciprocating masses. *************** Session 10 date : (28/3/07) VIBRATION ISOLATION AND TRANSMISSION: Vibration Isolation: High speed machines and engines due to unbalance give rise to vibrations of excessive amplitudes and due to the unbalance forces being setup. For very large frequency ratio. The peak amplitudes occur to right of resonance unlike for balanced systems. are placed between the machines and the foundations to reduce the vibrations or minimize then. dampers.

Rubber acts effectively as an isolator during shear loading. The sound transmitted by it is also low. The sound transmitted by them can be reduced by covering them with pads of felt. www.bookspar. substituting for X as X = F/((k– mω2 ) 2 + (cω)2). Thus the force transmitted to the foundation (Ftr ) is vector sum of the spring force (kX) and damping force (cωX). we have Ftr equal to. Heat and oil affect the rubber and it is usually preferred for light loads & high frequency oscillation. the spring and dashpot become the vibration isolators and the spring force and damping force are the forces between the mass and foundation. water or oil. Many small sized felt pads are used instead of a single large pad. They are not affected by air. Cork can be used for compressive loads. Ftr = X √(K2 + c2ω2 )..e.com | VTU NOTES 28 . This isolation of vibrations is expressed in terms of force or motion transmitted to the foundation. Ftr = F (√(K2 + c2ω2 ) / ((k– mω2 ) 2 + (cω)2) Transmissibility is defined as the ratio of force transmitted to the foundation to the force impressed on the system i. Helical & leaf springs of metal are used as isolators for high frequency ratios. We can write.www. TRANSMISSIBILITY: Fsinωt x m k c In a spring mass dashpot system subjected to harmonically varying external force.bookspar. The requirements of these isolating elements are that there should be no connection between the vibrating system & the foundation & it is to be ensured that in case of failure of isolators the system is still in of position on the foundation.

In the plot the frequency ratio values upto 0. The operating values of frequency ratio to achieve this effect should be greater than √2 and the region beyond this value of frequency ratio is called mass control zone where isolation is most effective.6 to √2 is damping control zone and beyond that is mass control zone. is called the transmissibility curve .
