Vibrations caused by heavy machinery can pose problems to structural integrity, especially if mounted on a steel structure or chassis. This model explores how to minimize vibrations in a diesel engine using a tuned mass damper.
To run this example, you'll need
Please make a selection:
Symbolically analyze the model equations in Mathematica to see how varying the parameters affects damping.
Do automatically parallelized parameter sweeps varying the spring damping constant and the damping mass.
Interactively select the mass and spring constant of the tuned damper and instantly view the vibration displacement.
Interact with CDF
Visualize the vibrations of the engine for different parameter combinations.
