This set up has been designed to perform and verify the principles involved in study of vibrations. It consists of a basic frame and various components and sub assemblies designed for quick changeover and easy assembly of number of experiments in vibrations. A speed controller unit is provided for forced vibration experiments.

With this unit following experiments can be conducted –

Pendulum Experiments

For Pendulum a sub frame is attached to upper beam. Two Chucks and Hardened V guide is provided for carrying experiments.

Experiment - 1 - Simple Pendulum

To verify the relation

L T = 2 p g

and plot graph T² Vs. L

Experiment - 2 - Compound Pendulum

- To verify the relation
K² + (OG)² T = 2 p g (OG)

- To determine the radius of gyration and equivalent length of compound pendulum.

Experiment - 3 - Bi-filler Suspension

( Tortional Oscillations) To determine the radius of gyration of body about the center of gravity by using relation

K L T = 2 p a g

Experiment - 4 - Longitudanal Vibration

To verify the relation -

W T = 2 p Km x g

and plot graph T² Vs. W

Experiment - 5 - Equivalent spring mass system

Study of un damped natural vibrations of beam pivoted at one end supported by tension spring at the other end.

Experiment - 6 - Equivalent spring mass system

Study of undamped natural vibration of beam pivoted at one end supported by tension spring at the other end to plot a graph of amplitude verses frequency.

Experiment - 7 - Single Rotor

To verify the relation -

I T = 2 p Kt

and study the relationship between the periodic time and shaft length.

Experiment - 8 - Two Rotor

To verify the relation -

I_{A}+ I_{B}T = 2 Kt (I_{A}+ I_{B})

and plot a graph F Vs. 1/ I1

Experiment - 9 - Single Rotor with viscous damping

To find out the damping coefficient Ct for various depths of damping drum (Immersed in oil) and to plot a graph of damping torque Vs. depth of damping drum.

Experiment - 10 - Dunkerley's Rule

To find out the natural frequency of a beam with and without load and to verify the Dunkerley's Rule.

Experiment - 11 - Forced Vibrations

To study the forced vibrations for various amount of damping and to plot a graph of amplitude verses frequency.
