Engineering Acoustics


Table of Contents 1. Lumped Acoustical Systems 2. One-Dimensional Wave Motion 3. Non-Linear Waves 4. Applications .............................................Forced Oscillations (Simple Spring- Mass System) In the previous section, we discussed how adding a damping component (e. g. a dashpot) to an unforced, simple spring-mass system would affect the response of the system. In particular, we learned that adding the dashpot to the system changed the natural frequency of the system from to a new damped natural frequency , and how this change made the response of the system change from a constant sinusoidal response to an exponentiallydecaying sinusoid in which the system either had an under-damped, overdamped, or critically-damped response. In this section, we will digress a bit by going back to the simple (undamped) oscillator system of the previous section, but this time, a constant force will be applied to this system, and we will investigate this system’s performance at low and high frequencies as well as at resonance. In particular, this section will start by introducing the characteristics of the spring and mass elements of a spring-mass system, introduce electrical analogs for both the spring and mass elements, learn how these elements combine to form the mechanical impedance system, and reveal how the impedance can describe the mechanical system’s overall response characteristics........
