AND ITS APPLICATIONS
Some Counter-intuitive Experiments in Vibration
Mechanical vibration is often taught as if it were a simple science. The mass-on-a-spring, uni-axial vibration of a rod, viscous damping, modal analysis - all these are the bread and butter of vibration science. But real vibrating systems just don't behave like this. There are pitfalls in even the simplest cases and some will be demonstrated: a tuning fork; a bottle of cola; a glass of champagne; a bending beam; a turbocharger wheel. All of these systems behave counter-intuitively.
