Dynamics of Continuous Systems Subjected to Traveling Loads
We studied several cases of dynamical problems, where the motion is driven by a concentrated force or distributed load applied at a moving position. The velocity of motion is assumed as constant. In particular, we studied interactions with periodic structure of the medium. Earlier results on one-dimensional structuresare extended to the case of an array of plates.
