Title

On Free Vibration of Structures with Different Tension and Compression Moduli

Editor(s)

Sathyamoorthy, Muthukrishnan

Abstract

Some aspects of nonlinear free vibration of bimodular structures behaving dissimilarly in tension and in compression are elucidated. It is shown that, in general, the character of the vibration is governed by the breakpoint in the restoring force versus displacement graph: when the latter is outside the coordinate origin, the vibration is nonisochronous, i. e. , dependent on the vibration half-throws; when the breakpoint is at the origin, there is no such dependence. An exact solution is given for the case in which the graph consists of a straight-line portion and a cubic-curve portion.
