Response of Timoshenko Beams on Winkler Foundation Subjected To Dynamic Load

[Full Text]



O. K. Ogunbamike



Key words- Vibration, Winkler elastic foundation, beam



Abstract - In this study, the dynamic response of a uniform deep beam resting on a Winkler elastic foundation and excited by a moving load is considered. The solution technique discussed involves the use of finite Fourier transform and the resulting simultaneous equations are reduced to simple algebraic equations via Laplace transform. Analytical and numerical solutions depict that as the values of the elastic foundation moduli increases, the amplitudes of transverse vibration of the beam decreases.
