Dynamics of Some Classical System Models (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Howard Wilson
The animated response of several classical system models is presented.
The animated response of several classical system models is presented. Examples include a) large amplitude pendulum motion b) falling elastic cable c) forced response of a spring-mass-damper system d) vibrating string either released with initial deflection, or shaken at one end, or subjected to a moving load e) beam released with initial deflection f) vibration modes for an elliptic membrane and for a pin-connected truss g) forced wave propagation in rectangular or circular membranes. The analyses employ Runge-Kutta integration, Fourier expansions, and algebraic eigenvalue calculations presented in the book Advanced Mathematics and Mechanics Applications Using MATLAB, 3rd Ed., by Howard Wilson, Louis Turcotte, and David Halpern, CRC Press, 2003.
