The theory of the top by Felix Klein( Book )

in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Energy in elastic fiber embedded in elastic matrix containing incident SH wave by James H Williams( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A single elastic fiber embedded in an infinite elastic matrix is considered. An incident plane SH wave is assumed in the infinite matrix, and an expression is derived for the total energy in the fiber due to the incident SH wave. A nondimensional form of the fiber energy is plotted as a function of the nondimensional wavenumber of the SH wave. It is shown that the fiber energy attains maximum values at specific values of the wavenumber of the incident wave. The results obtained here are interpreted in the context of phenomena observed in acousto-ultrasonic experiments on fiber reinforced composite materials

Mathematical theory of diffraction by Arnold Sommerfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arnold Sommerfeld's "Mathematische Theorie der Diffraction" marks a milestone in optical theory, full of insights that are still relevant today. In a stunning tour de force, Sommerfeld derives the first mathematically rigorous solution of an optical diffraction problem. Indeed, his diffraction analysis is a surprisingly rich and complex mix of pure and applied mathematics, and his often-cited diffraction solution is presented only as an application of a much more general set of mathematical results. The body of Sommerfeld's work is devoted to the systematic development of a method for deriving solutions of the wave equation on Riemann surfaces, a fascinating but perhaps underappreciated topic in mathematical physics. This complete translation, reflecting substantial scholarship, is the first publication in English of Sommerfeld's original work. The extensive notes by the translators are rich in historical background and provide many technical details for the reader. A detailed account of the previous diffraction analyses of Kirchhoff and Poincaré provides a context for the striking originality and power of Sommerfeld's ideas. The availability of this translation is an enriching contribution to the community of mathematical and theoretical physicists.

Wave Propagation in Transversely Isotropic Continuum Models of LSS (Large Space Structures)( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Continuum models of large repetitive lattice structures are often used to provide computationally efficient analyses of static, dynamic and thermomechanical properties. In this report, a continuum model is used to study wave propagation in lattice structures. Attention is focused on a tetrahedral lattice structure which may be modeled as an equivalent homogeneous transversely isotropic continuum. Numerical results for phase velocities, deviation angles, and wave front surfaces in the equivalent continuum show that wave propagation in lattice structures may be remarkably different from the more familiar wave propagation in isotropic continua. The results given here, which ignore all effects of boundaries of the lattice and which are valid for wavelengths that are long compared with the basic cell size of the lattice, are intended to give insight into how waves may propagate in large repetitive lattice structures. Keywords: Wave Propagation; Continuum Models; Lattice Structures; Large Space Structures

Natural Frequencies and Structural Integrity Assessment of Large Space Structures( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a previous report, transfer matrices and joint coupling matrices are used to compute natural frequencies of vibration of a five-bay planar lattice structure. In this report, the problem of detecting damage in the five-bay planar lattice structure is considered. Seven different states of damage are assumed. Each damage state corresponds to a disconnected or partially disconnected joint in the lattice. Transfer matrices and joint coupling matrices are used to compute natural frequencies associated with each damage state. The natural frequencies computed for each damage state are significantly different from the natural frequencies of the undamaged lattice; for example, the frequencies of the first flexible mode of the damaged lattice are 26% to 83% lower than the frequency of the first flexible node of the undamaged lattice. The results presented here demonstrate that measurement of natural frequencies is a potentially useful method for detecting damage in lattice structures, at least, for the types of damage considered here. However, it is also shown here that measurement of natural frequencies alone is not sufficient, in general, to determine the location of damage within the lattice structure. Thus, measurement of natural frequencies should be regarded as only a part of a complete nondestructive evaluation method. After the results obtained here are presented, some suggestions for NDE methods which may be capable of providing more quantitative measures of structural integrity are given

Computation of Natural Frequencies of Planar Lattice Structure( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Transfer matrices and joint coupling matrices are used to compute natural frequencies of vibration of a five-bay planar lattice structure. The method of analysis may be applied to general two and three-dimensional lattices. The necessary numerical computations may be performed easily with a personal computer. Numerical results for the first twenty-five nonzero natural frequencies of the five-bay planar lattice structure are given for the case when the members of the lattice are modeled as Bernoulli-Euler beams, and for the case when the members of the lattice are modeled as Timoshenko beams. The maximum difference in the computed natural frequencies of the two models occurs in the twenty-fifth mode and is less than one-half of one percent. The natural frequencies obtained here agree within six percent with the natural frequencies obtained in a previous analysis using a finite element method and an experimental modal analysis
Comparison of Wave-Mode Coordinate and Pulse Summation Methods( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nondispersive pulse propagation in a simple one-dimensional lattice structure is analyzed using the pulse summation method and the wave-mode coordinate method. The results of the two methods are shown to be identical, and both methods account for the existence of equivalent paths in the lattice. Some recommendations for future research are given. Keywords include: Wave Propagation, Large Space Structures, Wave-Mode Coordinates, and Pulse Summation Method
