Theoretical Analysis of Vibrations of a Mass Connected with a Support through a Chain of Elastic Elements
Vibrations of a mass are analyzed when the mass is connected with the support in succession of two elastic elements characterized by stiffness and damping coefficients. It is demonstrated that upon harmonic excitation of the mass and considering different values of stiffness and damping coefficients the system can respond differently in comparison to the case when the mass is connected to the support by means of single elastic element. Reduction of stiffness and damping coefficients of a pair of elements to a single one (as it is proposed in calculations of considered systems) can lead to incorrect results. This is confirmed by presented calculations and dependences.
