In this post, I will discuss the eighth example in our structural dynamics course covering the response of systems to harmonic excitation. The goal of this structural dynamics example is to calculate the steady state response and transmissibility of a rotating machine experiencing a mass unbalance.   The problem statement states,   The rotating machine…

In this post, I will discuss the fourth example in our structural dynamics course covering the response of systems to harmonic excitation. The goal of this structural dynamics example is to calculate the steady-state displacement parameters for a frame structure with a rigid deck subjected to harmonic excitation.   The problem statement states,   The structure…
