Abstract

"A study has been made of the application of impact dampers to two types of continuous systems, a simply supported and a clamped beam. Previous efforts have included the effect of impact dampers on single degree of freedom and other systems with finite numbers of degrees of freedom.

Experimental models were tested in the laboratory and finite element computer programs were developed to calculate response. Results from calculations agree favorably with experimental tests. Further, results from the first few natural modes also compare reasonably with data published on systems with finite number of degrees of freedom.

Curves are presented which enable the user to apply impact dampers to these types of continuous systems. Curves show the amount of the isolation to be expected for values of significant system parameters"--Abstract, page ii.
