You must have heard this Cam and follower mechanism is in Internal combustion engines. A Cam is a rotating machine element which gives reciprocating or oscillatory motions to another element known as the follower. Cam and Follower The Cam and the follower have a line contact and constitute a higher pair. Higher pair: When the […]

## What is Torsionally Equivalent Shaft?

In General, shaft comprised of multiple cross-sectional diameters with different lengths. Some times it is necessary to assume the shaft as a uniform diameter and length for some calculations such as finding the natural frequency. In such cases, we have to replace the different cross-section diameters with the equivalent shaft of uniform diameter. Which will […]

## Natural Frequency of Free Torsional Vibrations

In the previous articles, we have discussed how to find the Natural Frequency for Free Longitudinal Vibrations and for free Transverse Vibrations. In this article, we are going to discuss the Natural Frequency of Free Torsional Vibrations. As we know the natural Frequency of the Free Torsional Vibrations can be determined by the following methods. Equilibrium […]

## Natural Frequency of Free Transverse Vibrations

In the previous article, we have discussed how to find the Natural Frequency for Free Longitudinal Vibrations. In this article, we are going to discuss the Natural Frequency of Free Transverse Vibrations. As we know the natural Frequency of the Free Transverse Vibrations can be determined by the following methods. Equilibrium Method Energy Method Rayleigh’s […]

## Natural Frequency of Free Longitudinal Vibrations

We have discussed different types of free vibrations (Longitudinal, Transverse, Torsional) in the previous article. In this article, we are going to discuss the Natural Frequency of Free Longitudinal Vibrations. The natural Frequency of the Free Longitudinal Vibrations can be determined by the following methods. Equilibrium Method Energy Method Rayleigh’s method Equilibrium Method Let us […]
