Description of Vibration Absorber Apparatus
Experimental module, which fits into the Vibrations frame making up part of the Universal Vibration Apparatus. A central block is clamped to the test beam. Vibration Absorber carries two spring steel strips which are clamped in a cantilever arrangement transversely across the test beam. Attached onto each cantilever is a set of masses, which can have their magnitude and position adjusted.
With the aid of the LVDT from the cantilevers and mass system can be tuned to the same natural frequency as the surround test beam and motor exciter. Once this is achieved the resonance frequency of the original system can be observed along with the resonance frequency of the Vibration Absorber itself.
