Stability in transverse parametric vibration of axially accelerating viscoelastic beams is investigated. The governing equation is derived from Newton's second law, the Kelvin constitution relation, and the geometrical relation. When the axial speed is a constant mean speed with small harmonic variations, the governing equation can be regarded as a continuous gyroscopic system under small periodically parametric excitations and a damping term. The method of multiple scales is applied directly to the governing equation without discretization. The stability conditions are obtained for combination and principal parametric resonance. Numerical examples are presented for beams with simple supports and fixed supports, respectively, to demonstrate the effect of viscoelasticity on the stability boundaries in both cases.

    • "In another aspect, by considering the bending stiffness and the equilibrium, Wang and Mote found that significant error in the predicted vibration characteristics may occur if the coupling between vibration of the belt spans and pulleys is neglected [18]. One more thing should be noted, the viscoelasticity had been confirmed as an important characteristic of axially moving belt [19]. However, the viscoelasticity of the belt is barely considered in the investigation of the pulleyÀ belt systems. "

    ABSTRACT: The stable steady-state periodic responses of a belt-drive system with a one-way clutch are studied. For the first time, the dynamical system is investigated under dual excitations. The system is simultaneously excited by the firing pulsations of the engine and the harmonic motion of the foundation. Nonlinear discrete–continuous equations are derived for coupling the transverse vibration of the belt spans and the rotations of the driving and driven pulleys and the accessory pulley. The nonlinear dynamics is studied under equal and multiple relations between the frequency of the firing pulsations and the frequency of the foundation motion. Furthermore, translating belt spans are modeled as axially moving strings. A set of nonlinear piecewise ordinary differential equations is achieved by using the Galerkin truncation. Under various relations between the excitation frequencies, the time histories of the dynamical system are numerically simulated based on the time discretization method. Furthermore, the stable steady-state periodic response curves are calculated based on the frequency sweep. Moreover, the convergence of the Galerkin truncation is examined. Numerical results demonstrate that the one-way clutch reduces the resonance amplitude of the rotations of the driven pulley and the accessory pulley. On the other hand, numerical examples prove that the resonance areas of the belt spans are decreased by eliminating the torque-transmitting in the opposite direction. With the increasing amplitude of the foundation excitation, the damping effect of the one-way clutch will be reduced. Furthermore, as the amplitude of the firing pulsations of the engine increases, the jumping phenomena in steady-state response curves of the belt-drive system with or without a one-way clutch both occur. © 2015 The Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics; Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

    • "recoverable nature of SMA and the adhesive property of Ti 2 AlC, the damping behavior of the GCMeC is largely frequencydependent viscoelastic. Even the viscoelastic materials have wide application in solving damping problems of many engineering systems [1] [2] [3] [4], such as aircraft, space structures, automobiles, buildings, bridges and so on, their damping models in most available commercial finite element software do not explicitly represent the environmentally effected behaviors of actual materials (such as excitation frequency, ambient temperature, dynamic loads, etc.). One of the effective viscoelastic damping models in engineering applications was developed by Golla and Hughes [5] and McTavish and Hughes [6], known as the Golla–Hughes–McTavish (GHM) method. "

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the frequency dependent viscoelastic dynamics of a multifunctional composite structure from finite element analysis and experimental validation. The frequency-dependent behavior of the stiffness and damping of a viscoelastic material directly affects the system's modal frequencies and damping, and results in complex vibration modes and differences in the relative phase of vibration. A second order three parameter Golla-Hughes-McTavish (GHM) method and a second order three fields Anelastic Displacement Fields (ADF) approach are used to implement the viscoelastic material model, enabling the straightforward development of time domain and frequency domain finite elements, and describing the frequency dependent viscoelastic behavior. Considering the parameter identification a strategy to estimate the fractional order of the time derivative and the relaxation time is outlined. Agreement between the curve fits using both the GHM and ADF and experiment is within 0.001 percent error. Continuing efforts are addressing the material modulus comparison of the GHM and the ADF model. There may be a theoretical difference between viscoelastic degrees of freedom at nodes and elements, but their numerical results are very close to each other in the specific frequency range of interest. With identified model parameters, numerical simulation is carried out to predict the damping behavior in its first two vibration modes. The experimental testing on the layered composite beam validates the numerical predication. Experimental results also show that elastic modulus measured from dynamic response yields more accurate results than static measurement, such as tensile testing, especially for elastomers.

    ABSTRACT: Linear models of axially moving viscoelastic beams and viscoelastic pipes conveying fluid are considered. The natural frequencies of the models are calculated. For both models, viscoelasticity terms are assumed to be of order one. Natural frequencies corresponding to various beam and pipe parameters are presented. Effects of viscoelasticity on the natural frequencies are discussed.
