Modeling Scenario

##### 5-040-TunedMassDamper-Part-I-Modeling Scenario

We offer an opportunity to build mathematical models to mitigate dangerous displacements in structures using structural improvements called Tuned Mass Dampers. We model the motion of the original structure as a spring-mass-dashpot system.Modeling Scenario

##### 4-060-CircuitTuner-ModelingScenario

We present essential definitions and laws for the study of simple RLC electrical circuits and build a differential equation model using these notions. We describe how such a circuit can be used to tune a radio to a certain input frequency.Article or Presentation

##### 2008-Keith_Landry-Brian_Winkel-Peak_Frequency_Responses_and_Tuned_Mass_Dampers

We present two applications of systems of ordinary differential equations concerning excitation of a structure through resonance and (1) peak frequency responses with stabilization of the structure by means of a (2) Tuned Mass Damper (TMD).Modeling Scenario

##### 5-040-TunedMassDampers-PartII-ModelingScenario

Studentsbuild mathematical models to mitigate dangerous swaying in structures using structural improvements called Tuned Mass Dampers (TMD). We model the motion of the original structure as a spring-mass-dashpot with stiffness replacing spring...Potential Scenario

##### 1989-R_Blickhan-Spring Mass Model For Running-Hopping

A simple springâ€”mass model consisting of a massless spring attached to a point mass describes the interdependency of mechanical parameters characterizing running and hopping of humans as a function of speed.Potential Scenario

##### 2009-James_May-Nonlinear vibration control of long flexible structures

An automated, non-linear control scheme was developed to transfer energy from the fundamental vibration mode, where most vibration energy of the structures of interest resides, to higher order modes where vibration impedance was shown to be...Modeling Scenario

##### 3-010-EnergyInSpringMassSystem-ModlingScenario

As a way to synthesize the effects of damping and forcing terms, this activity is meant to encourage students to explore how different forcing terms will change the total energy in a mass-spring system.Modeling Scenario

##### 5-014-TwoSpringMass-ModelingScenario

We ask students to build a Free Body Diagram for a vertical two mass situation in which the two masses are held fixed at the tip and at the bottom. The mass holds the springs together at the join of the two springs in between.Modeling Scenario

##### 1-019-RocksInTheHead-Modeling Scenario

We describe an experiment with data on the perception of the individual mass of a collection of rocks in comparison to a 100 g brass mass. Students use the logistic differential equation as a reasonable model and estimate parameters.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-001-SpringMassDataAnalysis-ModelingScenario

We offer data on position of a mass at end of spring over time where the spring mass configuration has damping due to taped flat index cards at the bottom of the mass. Modeling of a spring mass configuration and estimation of parameters are the core.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-102-SpringMassDamped-ModelingScenario

Students build a model based on their perceptions of what the solution should look like for a simple spring mass system with damping.Potential Scenario

##### 2023-Roberto_Camassaa-Richard_McLaughlina-Tauberian identities and the connection to Wile E Coyote physics

The application of the motion of a vertically suspended mass-spring system released under tension is studied focusing upon the delay timescale for the bottom mass as a function of the spring constants and masses.Potential Scenario

##### 2009-Chellaboina-EtAl-Modeling And Analysis-Mass Action Kinetics

Mass-action kinetics are used in chemistry and chemical engineering to describe the dynamics of systems of reactions, that is, reaction networks. These models are a special form of compartmental systems, involving mass- and energy-balance relations.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-002-ModelsMotivatingSecondOrder-ModelingScenario

Ordinary differential equations involve second derivatives and second derivatives appear in many contexts, chief among them are the study of forces and resulting motion. This is principally because of Newton's Second Law of Motion.Article or Presentation
