Power Transmission of Two Coupled Rectangular Plates with Elastically Restrained Coupling Edge
A model of two coupled rectangular plates with elastically restrained coupling edge by using the Fourier series and Rayleigh-Ritz method is employed to analyze the power transmission and dynamic response, in which the flexural and in-plane vibrations are considered simultaneously. The contributions and effects of vibrational and internal force components of both flexural and in-plane vibration to the power transmission are investigated numerically. It is shown that the transverse shearing forces, twist moments and in-plane shearing forces have little influence on the power transmission, while the bending moments and the in-plane longitudinal forces play an important role in power transmission.
