Dynamic Assessment of Constrained Rigid Equipments
V. Sharif, M. Ghafory Ashtiany, S. Eshghi and A. Soroushian

In this study, the dynamic behaviors of rigid constrained equipments under the harmonic excitations have been studied and analytical rocking response formulations have been introduced. Derived response formulations showed that the constraining of a rocking equipment by a link element can produce four different sets of response equations depending on the link stiffness and the place of link assembly. Buildup-like, beating-like and chaotic behaviors are some new aspects of the response in such equipments. Sensitivity analysis results showed that although in the most cases interning of the link element reduces the rocking response rotations but can increase the total damped energy during the contacts of the equipments to the base. This can be known as a risk for the equipments with leakage potential or with fragile wedges.
