Title: Influence of Taper on Frames Supporting Machines Inducing Harmonic Excitations
Author(s): A. Rajaraman and C.V. Vaidyanathan
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 271-278
Keywords: dynamic loads; foundations; frames; machine bases; resonant frequency; structural design; vibration
Abstract:In the design of frames supporting machines inducing harmonic excitations, the frequency level is a major consideration. Altering this level - called tuning - requires the change in design parameters. This study presents results by introducing a new parameter - taper - so that existing frames could be tuned properly or in many cases redesigned to take up increased speeds of machinery. The results are given in tabular form for ready reference.
