How does explicit FEA solve governing equations? and what does this solve for? Told him that it solves for accelerations and then computes damping and displacement in next timesteps.... Less

What properties determine the natural frequency of a simple system (a mass point on a spring), and which way?

1 Answers

Stiffness, which is related to the material and shape of the spring. The greater the stiffness, the higher the frequencies. Mass. The greater the mass, the lower the frequencies. Omega = sqrt(k/m). Less
