Shock spectra and damage boundary curves for hyperbolic tangent cushioning system and their important features
Abstract:By applying the method suggested in the author's previous paper, shock spectra and damage boundary curves are investigated for a hyperbolic tangent cushioning system under the action of rectangular, half-sine, terminal-peak saw-tooth and initial-peak saw-tooth acceleration pulses, respectively. The shock spectrum is affected not only by the damping parameter but also by the dimensionless pulse peak, and both the damping parameter and the dimensionless fragility influence the damage boundary curve for this cushioning system. Some important features of a hyperbolic tangent cushioning system that differs from a tangent cushioning system are discussed in detail. Copyright © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
