### Methods

CHAPTER 4: Some methods for finding natural frequencies.

We have considered two systems each with two degrees-of-freedom. In chapter 2 we considered an axial system comprising two masses and two springs and in chapter 3 a rigid beam mounted on a spring at each end. These two systems will be used to illustrate various methods of finding natural frequencies and mode shapes. The methods can be applied to much more complex systems with many degrees-of-freedom but are more easily understood when applied to the two degree-of-freedom systems considered previously. It is useful at this stage to introduce the concept of principal coordinates as this will confirm the importance of natural frequencies and mode shapes. 4.1 Principal Coordinates It was shown that for a single degree of freedom system the equation of motion was mx' ' +kx = 0 ......................................... (1.1) which can be rearranged to give x'' +ω 2 x = 0 ........................................... (4.1) n where ω n = k the natural frequency of the system m

For the axial two degree-of-freedom system with m1=m2=m and k1=k2=k, the equations of motion were mx1' ' = − kx1 − k(x1 − x2 ) ............................... (2.1) mx 2' ' = k(x1 − x2 ) ........................................... (2.2) It would be useful if we could write these equations as two single degreeof-freedom system equations similar to (4.1) such that, p1' ' +ω 2 p1 = 0 ........................................... (4.2) n1 p2' ' +ω 2 p2 = 0 .......................................... (4.3) n2 as then the maths would be much simpler - we could just use the results from a single degree-of-freedom system. In fact this is possible if we make x1 = p1 + p2 ................................................ (4.4) x 2 = u1 p1 + u 2 p2 ......................................... (4.5) Substitute (4.1)and (4.5) in (2.1) and (2.2) m(p1' ' + p2' ' ) = −k(p1 + p2 ) − k(p1 + p2 − u1p1 − u2 p2 ) ....................... (4.6) m(u1p1'' +u 2p2 '' ) = k(p1 + p 2 − u1p1 − u2 p2 ) .............................. (4.7) Now eliminate p2 from the LHS by (4.6)x u 2 -(4.7) Contents

mp1' ' (u2 − u1 ) = − kp1(2u 2 − u 2u1 + 1− u1 ) − kp2 (u2 − u2u 2 + 1) ................. (4.8) and also eliminate p1 from the LHS by (4.6)x u1 -(4.7) mp 2' ' (u1 − u2 ) = − kp1(u1 − u1u1 + 1) − kp 2(2u1 − u1u2 + 1− u2 ) ................... (4.9) To remove p2 from RHS of (4.8) so that (4.8) only involves p1 requires u 2 − u 2u2 + 1= 0 and to remove p1 from RHS of (4.9) so that (4.9) only involves p2 also requires u1 − u1u1 + 1= 0 Thus solving u − u 2 + 1 = 0 will give the values of u1 and u 2 that will achieve our goal. u2 − u − 1 = 0 ∴u = 1± 1 + 4 1 ± 5 1 ± 2.236 = = = 1.618 or − 0.618 2 2 2

Thus equations (4.4) and (4.5) become x1 = p1 + p2 ......................................................... (4.10) x 2 = 1.618p1 − 0.618p2 ................................................ (4.11) It is of interest to note that the ratio of the p1 coefficients is x1 1 = = 0.618 the first mode shape x 2 1.618 and the ratio of the p2 coefficients is x1 1 = = −1.618 the second mode shape. x 2 −0.618 It remains to determine if ω n1 in equation (4.2) and ω n2 in equation (4.3) are the first and second mode natural frequencies. Substituting from equations (4.10) and (4.11) in equation (4.8) mp1' ' (−0.618 − 1.618) = −kp1(−1.236 + 1 + 1− 1.618) ∴−2.236mp1' ' = 0.854kp1 k ∴p1' ' +0.382 p1 = 0 m k k and hence if ω 2 = 0.382 and ω n1 = 0.618 the first natural frequency we may write n1 m m p1' ' +ω 2 p1 = 0 ................................................................. (4.2) n1 Substituting from equations (4.10) and (4.11) in equation (4.9) Contents

mp 2' ' (1.618 + 0.618) = −kp 2 (3.236 + 1+ 1 + 0.618) 2.236mp2' ' = −5.854kp2 k p2' ' +2.618 p2 = 0 m k and hence if ω 2 = 2.618 n2 m write k and ω n2 = 1.618 the second natural frequency we may m p2' ' +ω 2 p2 = 0 ............................................................... (4.3) n2

Equations (4.4) and (4.5) x1 = p1 + p2 ....................................................................... (4.4) x 2 = u1 p1 + u 2 p2 .................................................................... (4.5) may be re-arranged to give x − u2 x1 p1 = 2 u1 − u2 u x − x2 p2 = 1 1 u1 − u 2 ........................................................... (4.12) ........................................................... (4.13)

Thus the principal coordinates may be obtained if the mode shapes are known. Transient vibration: It is possible to use the principal coordinates to determine the transient response resulting from initial conditions with no external excitation. Equations (4.2) and (4.3) are of the form, x'' +ω 2 x = 0 n for which the solution is x(t) = A cosω n t + Bsinω n t Thus p1 (t) = A cosω n1t + Bsinω n1t and p2 (t) = C cosω n2 t + D sinω n2t If as in chapter 2 the initial conditions are taken to be x 2' (0) = x2 (0) = x1' (0) = 0 and x1(0) = X o then substituting in equations (4.12) and (4.13) with u1 = 1.618 and u 2 = −0.618 gives, 0 + 0.618X o 0.618X o = = 0.276Xo 1.618 − (−0.618) 2.236 1.618X o − 0 1.618X o p2 (0) = = = 0.724Xo 1.618 − (−0.618) 2.236 and p1' (0) = p2 ' (0) = 0 p1 (0) = p1 (t) = 0.276X o cosω n1t

Thus

and p2 (t) = 0.724X o cosω n1t and substituting in (4.4) gives x1 = 0.276X0 cosω n1t + 0.724X0 cosω n2 t the same as in chapter 2. Substituting in (4.5) gives x1 = 0.447X0 cosω n1t − 0.447X0 cosω n2 t the same as in chapter 2. 4.2 Energy Methods One of the interesting implications of the above is that if the mode shapes are known then it appears that the natural frequencies follow from these shapes. This idea can be used by considering the energy of vibrating systems. First consider a single degree-of-freedom system. If this system is vibrating sinusoidally, which without any continuing excitation can only be at its natural frequency, then x(t) = Asin(ωt + φ) Consider the maximum energy stored in the spring, which is when the extension is a maximum then 1 1 V max = kx2 = kA 2 max 2 2 Now consider the maximum kinetic energy of the mass. The velocity of the mass is v = x' (t) = ωA cos(ωt + φ) . So that v max = ωA and 1 1 T max = mv 2 = mω2 A2 max 2 2

From the principle of conservation of energy T max = V max so that 1 1 mω2 A2 = kA2 2 2 either A=0 and no motion exists or vibration can exist (at the natural frequency) when ω= k = ω n the natural frequency of the system m

We may use the same method on the two degree-of-freedom system.

Contents

If this system is vibrating sinusoidally, which without any continuing excitation can only be at a natural frequency, then x1(t) = A1 sin(ωt + φ) and x 2(t) = A2 sin(ωt + φ) The maximum energy stored in the springs is 2 1 1 1 2 2 2 1 V max = k1x1max + k2 x 2max − x1max = k1A1 + k2 (A2 − A1 ) 2 2 2 2

(

and the maximum kinetic energy is 1 1 1 2 2 1 T max = m 1v1max + m 2v2 max = m1ω2 A1 + m 2ω 2A2 2 2 2 2 2 2 From the principle of conservation of energy T max = V max so that 1 1 1 1 2 m 1ω 2A2 + m2ω 2A2 = k1A2 + k2 ( A2 − A1) 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 Thus by rearranging we can find an expression for ω ω =

k1A2 + k 2 (A2 − A1 )2 1

2 m1A1 + m 2A2 2

A1 k1η2 + k 2 (1− η)2 2 If we let η = (the mode shape) then ω = . A2 m1η2 + m 2 When m1=m2=m and k1=k2=k,

2

k1η2 + k 2 (1− η)2 η2 + (1 − η)2 k ω = = m m1η2 + m 2 η2 +1

When we used the method on the one degree-of-freedom system the mode shape was known as there was a single mass with an amplitude A. For this two degree-of-freedom system we have the mode shapes as an unknowns. If they were known we would get the two natural frequencies. If η = 0.618 0.382 + (1− 0.618 )2 k 0.382 + 0.1459 k k k then ω 2 = = = 0.382 and ω n1 = 0.618 0.382 + 1 m 1.382 m m m If η = −1.618 2.618 + (1+ 1.618 )2 k 2.618 + 6.854 k k k then ω 2 = = = 2.618 and ω n2 = 1.618 2.618 + 1 m 3.618 m m m What if they are not known. Then we may make a guess. If we guess η = 0.5

Contents

0.25 + (1 − 0.5)2 k 0.25 + 0.25 k k k then ω = = = 0.4 and ω n1 = 0.632 0.25 + 1 m 1.25 m m m

This is reasonably close. It is interesting to see how the prediction for ω varies with the presumed mode shape. This is shown in figure 4.1. The main points of interest are that the first natural frequency is a minimum of the curve. It follows that for any assumed mode shape the predicted natural frequency will not be less than the first natural frequency. Also for this two degree-of-freedom system the predicted natural frequency will not be higher than the second natural frequency. For more complex systems these conclusions are also valid.

4.3 Matrix methods For multi degree-of-freedom vibration it will be useful to use matrix formulations of the equations of motion. The equations of motion for the axial two degree-of-freedom system without damping are m 1x1' ' = −k1x1 − k 2 (x1 − x2 ) + F1 ....................... (4.1) m 2x 2' ' = k 2 (x1 − x2 ) ................................. (4.2) which may be rearranged as, m 1x1' ' + x1 (k1 + k2 ) − k2 x2 = F1 m 2x 2' ' − k2x1 + k2x 2 = 0 and in matrix form these are m 1 0 x '' k1 + k 2 1 + 0 m 2 x2' ' −k 2 which may be written as

..

− k2 x1 F1 = ......................................... (4.14) k 2 x2 0

[ M][ X]+ [K][ X] = [F]

.............................................................. (4.15)

where [ M] is called the mass matrix and [ K] the stiffness matrix.

Similarly for the beam on springs

The equations of motion for the system without damping are mx1' ' = −4k1x1 + 2k 2x2 + F(4 − 6b / L ) ...................................... (3.15) mx 2' ' = 2k1x1 − 4k 2x2 − F(2 − 6b / L ) ........................................ (3.16) which may be rearranged as, mx1' ' +4k1x1 − 2k2x 2 = F(4 − 6b / L ) mx 2' ' −2k1x1 + 4k2x 2 = − F( 2 − 6b / L ) and in matrix form these are, m 0 x '' 4k1 1 + 0 m x2' ' −2k1 −2k 2 x1 F(4 − 6b / L) = ...................... (4.16) 4k2 x2 −F(2 − 6b / L)

which again may be written as

[ M][ X]+ [K][ X] = 0 ................................................. (4.15)

It will be found that for any system we can write the equations of motion in this form and this will apply when there are more than two degrees-of-freedom. First consider natural frequencies. If it assumed that the system is vibrating sinusoidally so that

..

[ X] = −ω2 [X] . Then equation (4.15) reduces to,

..

[[K] − ω 2 [M]][X] = 0

system:

................................................ (4.16)

If we put λ = ω2 and [ X] = {u} we obtain the characteristic or eigen value equation of the

[[K ] − λ[M ]]{u} = 0

Contents

.................................................... (4.17)

For non-zero solutions for {u} det [[K ] − λ [M]] = 0 ..................................................... (4.18) Solving this equation gives the eigen values λ and hence the natural frequencies ω = λ . When each of these values is substituted in (4.17) the associated eigen vector {u} is found and this is the mode shape. Consider the axial system with m 1 = m 2 = m and k1 = k 2 = k and no excitation so that equation (4.14) becomes, m 1 0 x '' k1 + k 2 1 + 0 m 2 x2' ' −k 2 − k2 x1 = 0 k 2 x2

thus

m 0 x1 2k + −ω 2 0 m x2 −k 2k − mω 2 −k

−k x1 = 0 k x 2

rearranging − k x1 2 x = 0 ............................................... (4.20) k − mω 2

x1 for to be non-zero requires x 2 2k − mω 2 −k −k =0 k − mω 2

or (2k − mω 2 )(k − mω 2 ) − k 2 = 0 m 2ω 4 − 3mkω2 + k 2 = 0 This is the natural frequency equation (2.7) found previously. The mode shapes can be found by substituting the natural frequency values into (4.20). If the system has many degrees-of-freedom the natural frequency equation will be far more difficult to solve. Thus iterative methods are often used (and are the basis for some computer programs). 4.3.1 Iterative method Consider again equation (4.17)

[[K ] − λ[M ]]{u} = 0

this can be rearranged as

...................................................... (4.17)

λ [M]{u} = [K ]{u}

Contents

and premultiplying by [ M]−1 gives, λ {u} = [M ]−1[K]{u} ...................................................... (4.18) Highest natural frequency. If we make an initial guess of {u}1 then a second estimate {u}2 can be made using equation (4.18) so that λ(1) {u}2 = [M ]−1[K ]{u}1 λ(1) is the first estimate of the eigen value if an element of {u}1 is made unity and the same element in {u}2 is made unity by adjusting λ(1) . This process is repeated and it will be found

that the value converges to the highest natural frequency - remember λ = ω2 . We will make the first element unity. For the example above guess the first mode shape to be, x 1 {u}1 = 1 = x 2 −1 (we know the second mode shape will have a sign change in the elements) m 0 1 0 1 1 0 = m and therefore [ M]−1 = Now [ M] = 0 m 0 1 m 0 1 2k −k 2 −1 = k also [ K] = − k k −1 1 k 1 0 2 −1 k 2 −1 = so that [ M]−1[ K] = m 0 1 −1 1 m −1 1 k 2 −1 1 k 3 = and [ M]−1[ K]{u}1 = m −1 1 −1 m −2 3k 1 Thus λ(1) {u}2 = m −0.667 since the first element in {u}1 was unity the first element in {u}2 must also be unity and 1 . {u}2 = −0.667 3k 3k k The first estimate of the eigen value is λ(1) = so that ω n (1) = = 1.732 m m m The second iteration gives λ(2) {u}3 = [M ]−1[K ]{u}2 k 2 −1 1 k 2.667 2.667k 1 = = λ(2) {u}3 = m −1 1 −0.667 m −1.667 m −0.625 1 2.667k and λ(2) = Thus {u}3 = so that ω n (2) = −0.625 m 2.667k k = 1.633 m m

Contents

If we remember that the exact values for the highest mode are, 1 2.618k k and λ = Thus {u} = so that ω n = 1.618 we have got close after 2 −0.618 m m iterations. One more iteration gives, λ(3) {u}4 = k 2 −1 1 k 2.625 2.625k 1 = = m −1 1 −0.625 m −1.625 m −0.619

1 2.625k k and λ = Thus {u} = so that ω n = 1.62 and we are very close after 3 −0.619 m m iterations. Lowest natural frequency. Consider again equation (4.17)

[[K ] − λ[M ]]{u} = 0

this can be rearranged as

...................................................... (4.17)

and premultiplying by [ K]−1 gives, 1 {u} = [K ]−1[M]{u} ...................................................... (4.19) λ If we make an initial guess of {u}1 then a second estimate {u}2 can be made using equation (4.19) so that 1 −1 (1) {u}2 = [K ] [M ]{u}1 λ As before λ(1) is the first estimate of the eigen value if an element of {u}1 is made unity and the same element in {u}2 is made unity by adjusting λ(1) . This process is repeated and it will be found that the value converges to the lowest natural frequency - remember λ = ω2 . Again making the first element unity. Guess the first mode shape to be, x x 2

1 [K]{u} = [M ]{u} λ

{u}1 = 1 =

(we know that for the first mode shape each element has the same sign) 1 0 2 −1 and [ K] = k [ M] = m 0 1 −1 1 1 1 1 so that [ K]−1 = k 1 2 m 1 1 1 0 m 1 1 = so that [ K]−1[ M] = k 1 2 0 1 k 1 2

1 k Thus {u}3 = and λ(2) = so that ω n (2) = 1.6 2.5m

If we remember that the exact values for the lowest mode are, 1 k k and λ = Thus {u} = so that ω n = 0.618 we have again got close after 2 1.618 2.618m m iterations. One more iteration gives,

[ K]−1[ M]{u}3 =

m 1 1 1 m 2.6 2.6m 1 1 = = = (3) {u}4 k 1 2 1.6 k 4.2 k 1.615 λ

1 k k and λ = Thus {u} = so that ω n = 0.62 and we are again very close after 3 1.615 2.6m m iterations. For the iteration methods, the better the first guess the fewer the number of iterations required to get close to the exact value. For many methods of solution it is useful to have the mass matrix [ M] and the stiffness matrix [ K] symmetrical. Using Newton's second law to determine the equation of motion does not guarantee symmetrical matrices as can be seen from equation (4.16) which has,

[ K] =

4k1 −2k1

−2k 2 4k2

It is possible to obtain the equations using Langrange's equations and have symmetrical matrices.

4.5 Conclusions. Various methods have been described that allow the natural frequencies of complex systems to be calculated. Modern computer programs use some of these methods. As long hand calculations are not done for systems with large numbers of degrees of freedom a knowledge of these methods is important to appreciate how natural frequencies are calculated using computers. Often computer programs start from an assumed mode shape and using an iteration technique to find the solution. The major point of interest is that for all the systems considered thus far, the equations of motion in matrix notation have the same form. Thus it will be useful to have a general approach to matrix solutions. This will be pursued in the next two chapters. _____________________________________________________
