Title: Some related oscillation problems
Authors: Duncan, W. J.
Issue Date: Apr-1949
Abstract: Two simple means for establishing a relation between a pair of oscillation problems are briefly discussed. In the first, the displacements are connected by use of a differential operator. The set of natural frequencies is identical for the two problems and results of interest are obtained when the transformed boundary conditions can be physically interpreted. In this manner it is shown, for example, that flywheel on a uniform shaft can be transformed into a flexible coupling and a mass carried on a uniform beam into a flexible hinge. In the second, the connection is established by use of the concept of mechanical admittance. Here the frequency equations are simply related but the frequencies are not.
