1 Response to Harmonic Excitation Part 2: Damped Systems Part 1 covered the response of a single degree of freedom system to harmonic excitation without considering the effects of damping. However, almost every real world system that is analyzed from a vibrations point of view has some source of energy dissipation or damping. This module will expand on Part 1 and discuss the response of such a system to harmonic excitations with the effects of viscous damping included.
2 Harmonic Excitation of Damped Systems Fig 1: Spring-mass-damper with external force Consider a simple spring-mass system with damping being driven by a force of the form on a frictionless surface. Here is the magnitude of the applied force and is the angular frequency of the applied force. The sum of the forces in the y- direction is 0, resulting in no motion in that direction. In the x-direction, summing the forces on the mass yields... Eq. (1) Dividing through by gives... Eq. (2) where, as a reminder,
3 , is the natural frequency of the system and is the damping ratio. There are many ways of finding a solution to this type of a differential equation (Laplace transform approach, geometric method, method of undetermined coefficients, etc.). Here, the method of undetermined coefficients will be used by assuming the particular solution has the form shown in Eq. (3). It is known, from observation and from the study of differential equations, that the forced response of a damped system has the same frequency as the driving force but with a different amplitude and phase. Therefore, the particular solution of Eq. (2) is assumed to be of the form To simplify the computations, this can be written as... Eq. (3)... Eq. (4) where and such that and. Taking derivatives of Eq. (4) we get and... Eq. (5)... Eq. (6) Substituting these two equations into Eq. (2) gives
4 ... Eq. (7) This can be further simplified to.. Eq. (8) This equation must be valid for all values of. When, Eq. (9) simplifies to... Eq. (9) and when, Eq. (9) simplifies to... Eq. (10) Solving these two equations, gives... Eq. (11) and... Eq. (12) Substituting Eqs. (11) and (12) back into Eq. (4) and rewriting it in the form of Eq. (3), gives
5 ... Eq. (13) This is the equation for the particular solution. For the total solution, we need to add the homogeneous solution to this. For an underdamped system, we add Eq. (12) from the Free Response Part 2 module to get... Eq. (14) where, using the initial conditions and, the constant are given by and... Eqs. (15) to (18) Eq. (14) is the total solution for an underdamped system. The total solutions for a critically damped or overdamped system can be found using the same method of adding the homogeneous solution to the particular solution and using the initial conditions to find the constants. From Eq. (14) you can see that for relatively large values of, the homogeneous part of the
6 total solution approaches zero (this also applies to critically damped and overdamped systems because the homogeneous solutions for these two types of systems also decay with time). This means that as time increases, the total solution approaches the particular solution, which is also why the particular solution is also called the steady state response and the homogeneous solution is called the transient response. The following plots show a comparison of the total response and the steady-state response for a spring-mass system with different damping coefficients (the initial conditions and other parameters are kept constant: ). Comparison for zeta=1.5 Comparison for zeta=0.05
7 Comparison for zeta=5 For the following plot, the damping coefficient, the spring constant and the initial conditions can be adjusted using the gauges to see the effect on the total response. The rest of the parameters of the system are the same as for the above plots ( ).
8 As can be seen from the plots, the total response and the steady-state response merge after some time. In many cases, depending on the system and the purpose of the analysis, the transient response may die out very quickly and may be ignored. These plots also show that the amplitude of the steady-state vibrations depend on the damping coefficient. From Eq. (18), it is clear that the amplitude of the steady state vibrations also depends on the driving frequency. By defining another ratio,, called the frequency ratio, Eq. (18) can be rewritten as the following equation for the normalized amplitude of the steady-state response.... Eq. (19) This equation is plotted vs. the frequency ratio for different values of :
9 Normalized amplitude vs. frequency ratio From this plot, it can be seen that for systems with low damping coefficients, the amplitude is maximum close to (when the driving frequency is equal to the natural frequency). Also, it is important to note that, as the damping increases, the frequency for which the maximum amplitude is obtained shifts away from the natural frequency until there is no peak. The maximum amplitude is obtained when if and there is no peak if This information can be very important from a design point of view. Similar to Eq. (19) the following equation shows the phase of the steady-state response as a function of the frequency ratio.
10 ... Eq. (20) The following plot shows the phase vs. the frequency ratio. Amplitude vs. frequency ratio This plot shows that as the driving frequency increases, the phase difference between the steady-state response and the driving force increases from 0 to Pi and is equal to Pi/2 (90 ) at the natural frequency of the system. Examples with MapleSim Example 1: Spring-mass oscillator Compute the steady-state response of a spring-mass system with damping for the values given below and plot the response for 10 seconds.

Step 4: Run the Simulation Attach a Probe to the Mass component as shown in Fig. 2. Click this Probe and select Length in the Inspector tab. This shows the position of the mass as a function of time. Click Run Simulation ( ). Example 2: Spring-Pendulum Problem Statement: A component of a machine is modeled as a pendulum connected to a spring (as shown in Fig. 3). This component is driven by a motor that applies a sinusoidal moment Nm about the axis of rotation. Derive the equation of motion and find the natural frequency of the system. The mass of the pendulum is 2kg, the length of the pendulum is 0.5m, the stiffness of the spring is 20 N/m and the damping coefficient is 20 N$s/m. Assume that the rod of the pendulum has no mass. The initial angular displacement is rad (approx. 10 ) measured from the vertical and there is no initial angular velocity. a) Plot the total response and find the maximum angular displacement of the pendulum. b) Find the angular frequency of the applied moment that would lead to steady state vibrations of the maximum amplitude. Fig. 3: Spring-pendulum example
16 Analytical Solution Data: [kg] [m] [N/m] [N$s/m] [m/s 2 ] [rad] [rad/s] [rad/s] Solution: Part a) Total response Using the small angle approximation, we will assume that the spring stretches and compresses in the horizontal direction only. Hence the force due to the spring can be written as and the force due to the damper can be written as Taking the sum of the moments of force about the pivot gives where as is the moment of inertia of the pendulum. This equation can be rewritten
17 or : Comparing this equation to the form of Eq. (2) and using Eq. (14), the total response can be written as where = = =
18 The following shows the plot of the total response for 10 seconds. From this plot, it can be concluded that the maximum displacement is approximately 0.29 rad at approximately 0.17 seconds. Part b) Driving frequency for maximum amplitude steady-state vibrations The amplitude of the steady-state oscillations is given by where is the driving frequency. To find the value of for which the amplitude will be maximum, this expression is differentiated with respect to and equated to zero.
19 ( ) solve for w F ( ) Ignoring and (does not make physical sense), we can conclude that the amplitude of the steady state oscillations will be maximum when the driving frequency is approximately 4.62 rad/s which is very close to the natural frequency of 4.70 rad/s.

25 Example 3: Wind turbine vibrations Problem statement: The wind turbine described below has three rotor blades, one of which has a moment of inertia which is 1 percent less than the moment of inertia of the other two blades. Obtain a plot of the system response for a range of rotational speeds. Description The tower of a small wind turbine is a hollow steel cylinder of height 10 m with inner and outer diameters of 0.2 m and 0.15 m respectively. The density of the steel is 7800 Kg/m 3 and its modulus of elasticity is approximately 2 x10 11 N/m 2. The mass of the nacelle and its contents (the generator and the drivetrain) is approximately 500 kg. The wind turbine has three rotor blades. Two of the blades blade have a mass of 10 Kg and a mass moment of inertia of approximately 20 kg/m 2. One of the blades has a moment of inertia which is 1% less than the other blades. This unbalance may be due to manufacturing defects, damage, wear, etc. Fig. 6: Wind turbine MapleSim Model In this example, we will create a simplified lumped mass model of a wind turbine to
26 study the vibrations due to unbalanced rotors. The tower can be modeled as a cantilever beam with a tip mass subjected to a tip force. Based on the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory the deflection at the tip of a cantilever beam due to a tip force is where is the tip force, is the length of the beam, is the modulus of elasticity of the material and is the area moment of inertia of the beam. This equation can be rewritten as Therefore, the tower can be modeled as a spring with stiffness In this case, where is the outer diameter of the tower and is the inner diameter. To simplify the model, it will be assumed that the tower behaves as a rod hinged at the base. The mass moment of inertia of a rod about an axis passing through one end is
27 so the mass of the tower will be included in the model as a point mass of mass located at the tip of the tower. The mass of the tower can be calculated using the following expression where is the density of the steel and is the height of the tower. The mass of the nacelle and its contents (the generator and the drivetrain) is approximately 500 kg. This will also be modeled as a point mass at the tip of the tower. The wind turbine has three rotor blades. Each blade has a mass of 10 Kg and a mass moment of inertia of approximately 20 kg/m 2. Each blade can be modeled as a point mass of 10 kg located at a distance of m from the axis of rotation. To study the effect of the unbalanced mass, the mass of one of the three blades will be set as 0.99$10 kg. The following image shows the component diagram for the model. Fig. 7: Wind turbine simulation component diagram As can be seen from this diagram, a Ramp component is used to apply a linearly increasing angular speed to the rotor. Also, CAD models for the rotor blades and the rotor hub have been attached for a more interesting visualization. The following two images show the 3-D view of the simulation without and with
28 visualization. Fig. 8: 3-D view without CAD visualization Fig. 9: 3-D view with CAD visualization Simulation Results The following two plots show the Angular Frequency of the rotation (in rad/s) vs. time (sec) and the deflection of the top of the turbine (m) vs. time (sec).
29 Fig. 10: Angular frequency (rad/s) and tip deflection (m) vs. time t (sec) plots for h=10 m. These plots show that the greatest vibrations are obtained at around 6.5 rad/s. At this angular frequency the deflection of the top of the wind turbine is approximately 4 mm. This shows that a slight imbalance in the blades can result in relatively large deflections at certain speeds. Also, from a design point of view, this information is important because it shows what range of speeds should be avoided from a structural point of view and whether structural modifications are required. If the height of the tower is reduced to 5 m and the range of speeds used is changed, the following results are obtained.
30 Fig. 11: Angular frequency (rad/s) and tip deflection (m) vs. time t (sec) plots for h=5 m. In this case, the vibrations are maximum at a rotational speed around 19.5 rad/s. The following video shows the 3-D visualization of the wind turbine.
