It addresses the problem of finding the dynamic cyclic response of mechanical systems experiencing dry friction with a particular focus on the influence of varying normal and tangential loads. I first start from a single degree of freedom model and gradually increase the complexity of the system. In the last chapter I address a system with 12 degrees of freedom which shows localized vibration states, that are very similar to solutions known in other physics fields like optics and fluid dynamics.
This monograph gives a complete overview on the subject of nonconservative stability from the modern point of view. Relevant mathematical concepts are presented, as well as rigorous stability results and numerous classical and contemporary examples from mechanics and physics.
I want to find the material damping of polymer material through ansys, Is it possible to find the damping of a material damping by using ansys. In the experimental work the polymer material perspex is used in which 9 layers of perspex material are mounted on milling machine bed and machining is done along with work piece material to reduce the vibration and to found out the damping. How this can be analysed in ansys and which models can be used for this. Many layers are stacked one upon the other and damping has to be found out.How this modelling can be done.
Carbon nanotubes as strong fibers in CNT-composites are subjected to large deformations in radial direction. They provide strength as well as structural damping in the composite. Despite being strong in the axial direction, CNTs are rather soft in the radial direction.
