Dynamic Center of Elasticity Concept for One-dimensional Structural Elements Journal of Sound and Vibration (2019)
The center of elasticity concept for one-dimensional structural elements is most often understood in the context of a point in the cross-section lying between the flexural and torsional centers of the section. However, the elastic ...
Identification of multi-dimensional elastic and dissipative properties of elastomeric vibration isolators Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (2019)
Experimental methods must be adopted to characterize the dynamic properties of elastomeric isolators, especially their multi-dimension elastic and dissipative properties. To facilitate a tractable problem statement a rigid body isolation system (under a weight-type preload) ...
Effect of Fractionally Damped Compliance Elements on Amplitude Sensitive Dynamic Stiffness Predictions of a Hydraulic Bushing Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (2018)
Hydraulic bushings exhibit significant amplitude dependent behavior which cannot be captured with the linear time-invariant system theory. Accordingly, Fredette et al. (2016) have proposed a nonlinear model, but the amplitude sensitivity has not been adequately ...
Nonlinear Fluid Damping Models for Hydraulic Bushing Under Sinusoidal or Transient Excitation Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part D: Journal of Automobile Engineering (2018)
Hydraulic bushings are typically characterized in terms of sinusoidal dynamic stiffness at lower frequencies over a range of excitation amplitudes. However, in practice they are also exposed to severe transient loads in conjunction with sinusoidal ...
High Frequency, Multi-axis Dynamic Stiffness Analysis of a Fractionally Damped Elastomeric Isolator Using Continuous System Theory Journal of Sound and Vibration (2017)
A spectral element approach is proposed to determine the multi-axis dynamic stiffness terms of elastomeric isolators with fractional damping over a broad range of frequencies. The dynamic properties of a class of cylindrical isolators are ...
Estimation of the Transient Response of a Tuned, Fractionally Damped Elastomeric Isolator Journal of Sound and Vibration (2016)
This article addresses the frequency dependent properties of elastomeric vibration isolators in the context of lumped parameter models with fractional damping elements. A mass is placed between two fractional calculus Kelvin-Voigt elements to develop a ...
Dynamic Analysis of Hydraulic Bushings with Measured Nonlinear Compliance Parameters SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems (2015)
Hydraulic bushings with amplitude sensitive and spectrally varying properties are commonly used in automotive suspension. However, scientific investigation of their dynamic properties has been mostly limited to linear system based theory, which cannot capture the ...
