Energetics and Conserved Functional of Axially Moving Materials Undergoing Transverse Nonlinear Vibration

Publication Date Jan 1, 2004


Axially moving materials can represent many engineering devices such as power transmission belts, elevator cables, plastic films, magnetic tapes, paper sheets, textile fibers, band saws, aerial cable tramways, and crane hoist cables @1–3#. Energetics of axially moving materials is of considerable interest in the study of axially moving materials. The total mechanical energy associated with axially moving materials is not constant when the materials travel between two supports. It is a fundamental feature of free transverse vibration of axially moving materials, while the total energy is constant for an undamped non-translating string or beam. Chubachi @4# first discussed periodicity of the energy transfer in an axially moving string. Miranker @5# analyzed energetics of an axially moving string, and derived an expression for the time rate of change of the string energy. Barakat @6# considered the energetics of an axially moving beam and found that energy flux through the supports can invalidate the linear theories of both the axially moving string and beam at sufficiently high transporting speed. Tabarrok, Leech and Kim @7# showed that the total energy of a travelling beam without tension is periodic in time. Wickert and Mote @8# pointed out that Miranker’s expression represents the local rate of change only because it neglected the energy flux at the supports, and they presented the temporal variation of the total energy related to the local rate of change through the application of the onedimensional transport theorem. They...
