Abstract:

A theoretical and experimental investigation was made of the behavior of a cantilever beam in transverse motion when its root is suddenly brought to rest. Equations are given for determining the stresses, the deflections, and the accelerations that arise in the beam as a result of the impact. The theoretical equations, which have been confirmed experimentally, reveal that at a given percentage of the distance from root to tip the bending stresses for a particular mode are independent of the length of the beam, whereas the shear stresses vary inversely with the length.
