RESPONSE OF A SINGLE DEGREE OF FREEDOM SYSTEM TO VARIOUS TRANSIENTS
GENERAL DYNAMICS/ASTRONAUTICS SAN DIEGO CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The ratio of maximum deflection of a one degree of freedom system to the static deflection corresponding to the peak force is approximately independent of pulse shape within plus or minus 5 for effective pulse durations impulsepeak force less than about 20 of the free natural period of the system. The above deflection ratio equals unity when the effective pulse duration is about 17 to 18 of the free natural period of the system for an undamped system. For damped systems the duration for unity deflection ratio is somewhat greater.
