ON A THEORY CONCERNING THE DYNAMICAL BEHAVIOR OF STRUCTURES CARRYING MOVING MASSES

Two new methods are presented in order to determine the behavior of a structure carrying moving masses. The first method is analytic in nature and represents a modified asymptotic method in the theory of nonlinear phenomena. The second method is an exact numerical technique general enough to be used for solving exactly a set of differential equations with singular coefficients. The results show that the analytical method is in excellent agreement with the exact one obtained by means of a numerical technique. Furthermore, it is shown that the effect of the response of the structure to the moving mass has to be properly considered.
