Sliding-vibrating responses of elastic structures

  • Yu-An Fu Ministry of Metallurgical Industry, Beijing, China


By using simulated friction forces, analytical expressions were derived from the sliding-vibrating response of a single degree of freedom system under harmonic excitation or the "disadvantageous period reciprocating motion", taking the mass of the sliding base into consideration. Some of the general laws were studied and some new characteristics determined which had previously been ignored by assuming rigid body motion. The analysis methods adopted in this paper have been confirmed in comparison with the results of model tests on a shake table.
