Some remarks on dynamic receptance, stiffness, and impedance of mechanical systems Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, several general properties are proved for the dynamic receptance, stiffness, and impedance matrices of linear mechanical systems. First, undamped systems are considered and Foster's theorem, which is well known in network theory, is generalized; its new, generalized form seems to be unknown also in network theory. Two additional theorems are also proved for damped systems, the second one for a special case of modal damping. The results are illustrated by several examples. 1986 Birkhuser Verlag.
