Description

Offers designers and users of mechanical systems an overview of structural stiffness and damping and their critical roles in mechanical design. The text assesses the relationship between stiffness and damping parameters in mechanical systems and structural materials. An accompanying disk contains detailed analyses of stiffness- and damping-critical systems.

Table of Contents

Introduction and definitions; stiffness of structural components - modes of loading; nonlinear and variable stiffness systems - preloading; contact (joint) stiffness and damping; supporting systems and foundations; stiffness of power transmission systems and drives; design techniques for reducing structural deformations and damping enhancement; use of managed stiffness in design. Appendices: single-degree-of-freedom dynamic systems with damping; static stiffness breakdown for cylindrical (OD) grinders; influence of axial force on beam vibrations; articles of interest.
