INTRODUCTION. The purpose of this text is to provide the students with the theoretical background and engineering applications of the three dimensional mechanics of a rigid body. It is divided into four chapters. The first one, Three-Dimensional Kinematics of A Particle, deals with the geometry of motion of an individual particle in terms of the inertial as well as in terms of the non-inertial system of coordinates. The introduced in this chapter translating, rotating as well as the translating and rotating system of coordinates allows motion of the rigid body with respect to the inertial frame to be determined and classified. The second chapter, entitled Three-Dimensional Kinematics of A Rigid Body, provides procedures for determination of the absolute velocity and the absolute acceleration of any point that belong to the rigid body. Both, the general motion and the motion about a fixed point is considered. The last two chapters are related with the relationships between motion and forces that act on bodies. The chapter Kinetics of A System of Particles oﬀers general principles that can be apply to any system of particles regardless of their number and internal forces acting between the individual particles. Because each continuum (fluid, gas, rigid or elastic body) can be considered as a system of particles, the derived equations form a base for development of many branches of mechanics (fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, rigid body mechanics etc.). The developed principles are widely utilized in the chapter entitled Kinetics of A Rigid Body. This chapter gives procedures for determination of matrix of inertia of a rigid body and its principal axes. This makes possible to produce expression for the kinetic energy of the moving rigid body as well as to derive its equations of motion. Both, the general motion as well as rotation of a rigid body is considered. Each chapter is ended with several engineering problems. Solution to some of them is provided. Students should produce solution to the other problems during tutorials and in their own time.

Figure 1 To consider motion of a particle we assume the existence of so-called absolute (motionless) system of coordinates Xa Ya Za (see Fig. 1). DEFINITION: Inertial system of coordinated is one that does not rotate and which origin is fixed in the absolute space or moves along straight line at a constant velocity. Inertial systems of coordinates are usually denoted by upper characters, e.g. XY Z, to distinguish them from non-inertial systems of coordinates which are usually denoted by lower characters, e.g. xyz. 1.1.1 Absolute linear velocity and absolute linear acceleration Let us assume that a motion of a particle is given by a set of parametric equations 1.1 which determine the particle coordinates for any instant of time. rX = rX (t) rY = rY (t) rZ = rZ (t)

were I, J, K are unit vectors of the inertial system of coordinates XY Z. Vector of the absolute velocity, as the first derivative of the absolute position vector r with respect to time, is given by the following formula. ∆r ∆rX ∆rY ∆rZ = I lim + J lim + K lim = Ir˙X + Jr˙Y + Kr˙Z ∆t→O ∆t ∆t→O ∆t ∆t→O ∆t ∆t→O ∆t (1.3) Similarly, vector of the absolute acceleration is defined as the second derivative of the position vector with respect to time. v = r˙ = lim

∆v = I¨ rX + J¨ rY + K¨ rZ ∆t→O ∆t

a=¨ r = lim

Scalar magnitude of velocity v (speed) can be expressed by formula q √ 2 v = |v| = v · v = r˙X + r˙Y2 + r˙Z2

Scalar magnitude of acceleration is a = |a| =

Figure 3 DEFINITION:System of coordinates which can not be classified as inertial is called non-inertial system of coordinates. The non-inertial systems of coordinates are denoted by lower characters (e.g. xyz) to distinguish it from inertial one. DEFINITION: If a non-inertial system of coordinates does not rotate (its axes xyz are always parallel to an inertial system) the system is called translating system of coordinates (Fig. 3 a). DEFINITION: If a non-inertial system of coordinates rotates about origin of an inertial system of coordinates, the system is called rotating system of coordinates (Fig. 3b) In a general case a non-inertial system of coordinates may translate and rotate. DEFINITION: System of coordinates which can translate and rotate is called translating and rotating system of coordinates (Fig.3c) 1.2.1 Motion in terms of translating system of coordinates.

Let XY Z be the inertial system of coordinates and xyz be the translating system of coordinates. The relative motion of xyz system with respect to XY Z is usually defined by a position vector ro (Fig.4). Let us consider a particle P which moves with respect to the translating system of coordinates and its relative motion is given by the position vector rP,o . The position vector of the particle P in the XY Z frame can be composed from vectors ro and rP,o . rP = ro + rP,o = IroX + JroY + KroZ + irP,ox + jrP,oy + krP,oz

(1.8)

Hence, the absolute velocity of the particle P , as the first derivative of vector rP with respect to time is ˙ oX + Jr ˙ oY + Kr ˙ oZ r˙ P = Ir˙oX + Jr˙oY + Kr˙oZ + Ir ˙ P,oy + kr ˙ P,oz +ir˙P,ox + jr˙P,oy + kr˙P,oz + ˙irP,ox + jr

(1.9)

˙ = ˙i = j˙ = k˙ = 0 Since, I˙ = J˙ = K r˙ P = Ir˙oX + Jr˙oY + Kr˙oZ + ir˙P,ox + jr˙P,oy + kr˙P,oz

(1.10)

In the expression for the absolute velocity one may distinguish two parts called velocity of transportation and relative velocity. DEFINITION: Velocity of transportation is the velocity of the particle it would have if it would be motionless with respect to the non-inertial frame (rP,o = const) DEFINITION: Relative velocity is the velocity of the particle it would have if the non-inertial system of coordinates would be motionless (ro = const). According to the above definitions the velocity of transportation in the case considered is vT = r˙ o = Ir˙oX + Jr˙oY + Kr˙oZ (1.11) and the relative velocity is vR = ir˙P,ox + jr˙P,oy + kr˙P,oz

(1.12)

vP = r˙ P = vT + vR

(1.13)

Hence, the absolute velocity

Similarly, one can prove that the absolute acceleration of the particle P is rP = aT + aR aP = ¨

(1.14)

where aT and aR stand for the acceleration of transportation and the relative acceleration respectively. DEFINITION: Acceleration of transportation is the acceleration of the particle it would have if it would be motionless with respect to the noninertial frame (rP,o = const)

Figure 5 As it was mention before, the rotating system of coordinates has its origin coinciding the origin of an inertial system of coordinates (Fig.5). First of all, we have to establish matrix which transfers components of a vector from rotating system of coordinates xyz to the inertial XY Z. Matrix of direction cosines. Let the relative motion of a particle P be determined by a position vector r, which components in the rotating system of coordinates xyz (Fig.6) are r = irx + jry + krz

(1.17)

Components of the vector r along the inertial system of coordinates XY Z may be obtained as scalar products of the vector r and unit vectors IJK. rX = = rY = = rZ = =

(1.19)

The transfer matrix [Cr→i ] is called matrix of direction cosines. From the manner we have developed the matrix of direction cosines it is easy to notice that the inverse matrix equal the transpose one. [Cr→i ]−1 = [Cr→i ]T = [Ci→r ]

(1.20)

Another useful relationship should be noticed from Fig. 7. Cosine of angle between two unit vectors e.g. i and J is equal to the component of one on the other. i

Figure 8 From Fig. 8 one can see that components iX, iY, iZ ,which are equal to corresponding direction cosines, fulfil the following relationship. i2X + i2Y + i2Z = cos2 ∠iI + cos2 ∠iJ + cos2 ∠iK = 1

(1.22)

There exists six such relationships. Hence, only three direction angles can be chosen independently. The three independent angles, which uniquely determined the position of the rotating system of coordinates with respect to the inertial one, are called Euler’s angles. Euler angles.

In the next step, let us turn the system xyz about axis x1 by an angle θ. The new position of the system xyz is shown in Fig. 11 as x2 y2 z2 . The matrix of direction cosines between system x2 y2 z2 and x1 y1 z1 has the following form.

Introducing Eq. 1.28 into Eq. 1.27) and than Eq. 1.27) into Eq. 1.26) one may obtained ⎤ ⎤ ⎤ ⎡ ⎡ ⎡ rx rx rX ⎣ rY ⎦ = [Cr1 →i ][Cr2 →r1 ][Cr→r2 ] ⎣ ry ⎦ = [Cr→i ] ⎣ ry ⎦ (1.29) rZ rz rz

Hence the matrix of direction cosines between rotating system xyz and the inertial XY Z is [Cr→i ] = [Cr1 →i ][Cr2 →r1 ][Cr→r2 ] (1.30) The last formula allows to express the direction cosines as function of three independent angles known as Euler’s angles. The angle φ is called angle of precession, angle θ is called angle of mutation and the angle ψ is called angle of spin.

Figure 13 The introduced Euler angles can not be considered as vectorial values. To show it let us consider transformation of point Ao due to rotation about axes x and y by 90o . If we turn the vector ro by 90o first about axis x and then about axis y, the final position of the point Ao is represented by vector r2 (Fig.13a). Let us do the same, but now the vector ro is turned about axis y first and then about axis x (Fig. 13 b). We can see that the final position depend on the order of rotation. Hence, angular displacement can not be considered as a vector because at least the commutative law would be violated.

φ

Figure 14 It is easy to show, but the proof is here omitted, that the infinitesimal angular displacement can be considered as vectorial magnitude. Vector of the infinitesimal angular displacement is perpendicular to the plane of rotation and its sense is determined by the law of right-handed screw (Fig. 14). Such vectors which have determined only direction and sense are called free vectors to distinguish them from linear vectors (sense and line of action is determined) and position vectors ( position of its tail, direction and sense is determined). According to the above rules the infinitesimal angular increments of Euler’s angles dφ, dψ and dθ may be drawn as shown in Fig. 15.

angular displacement of the system of coordinates xyz. Hence, the point A at the instance considered moves along circle of radius (1.32)

h = r sinβ

The infinitesimal increment of vector r is tangential to the circle and is placed in plane perpendicular to the axis l. Its scalar magnitude is dr = h dα = r dα sinβ

(1.33)

Hence, the infinitesimal increment dr can be considered as a vector product of vector dα and r. dr = dα × r (1.34) The velocity of the point A is v= The vector

dα dt

dr dα = ×r dt dt

(1.35)

is called vector of angular velocity ω. ω=

dα dt

(1.36)

and the velocity of A can be expressed as follow. v =ω×r

(1.37)

If motion of the rotating system of coordinates is determined by Euler’s angles, its angular velocity, according to the above definition and Eq. ??, is ω=

The vector ω can be resolved along any system of coordinates. In particular it can be resolved along axes of the inertial system of coordinates XY Z (1.39)

ω = Iω X + JωY + KωZ

The scalar magnitude of the components ω X, ωY, ω Z can be expressed as functions of Euler’s angles and their first derivatives. dθ dφ dψ + I · i1 + I · k dt dt dt dθ dψ dφ = J · K + J · i1 + J · k dt dt dt dθ dψ dφ = K · K + K · i1 + K · k dt dt dt

(1.40)

Having the components of angular speed as explicit function of time it is possible to find the vector of angular velocity for any instant of time. The locus of the lines of action of the vector of angular speed in the inertial system of coordinates is called space cone (Fig. 18 a) space cone

The components ω x, ωy, ω z determine for any instant of time direction of the angular velocity in the rotating system of coordinates. The locus of these lines make up so called body cone (Fig. 18 b). The rotational motion of the system xyz with respect to the XY Z, can be hence considered as rolling without slipping of the body cone on the space cone (Fig. 18 c). The angular acceleration is defined as the first derivative of the vector of angular velocity with respect to time. ε=

Derivative of a vector expressed in terms of a rotating system of coordinates According to the consideration carried out in the previous paragraphs the rotational motion of a system of coordinates xyz with respect to the inertial one can be defined by three independent angles (e.g. Euler angles) or, alternatively the rotational motion can be determined by its initial position and the vector of its angular velocity ω. Let ω be the absolute angular velocity of the rotating system of coordinates xyz (Fig. 19). z Z Az

Figure 19 Consider a vector A which is given by its components along the rotating system of coordinates xyz. A = iAx + jAy + kAz (1.44) Let us diﬀerentiate this vector with respect to time. ˙ = d (iAx + jAy + kAz ) A dt

(1.45)

˙ y + kA ˙ z ˙ = iA˙ x + jA˙ y + kA˙ z + ˙iAx + jA A

(1.46)

Hence The first three terms represent vector which can be obtained by direct diﬀerentiating of the components Ax , Ay , Az with respect to time. This vector will be denoted by A0 . A0 = iA˙ x + jA˙ y + kA˙ z (1.47)

Thus ˙ y + kA ˙ z ˙ = A0 + ˙iAx + jA A

Figure 20 ˙i = di = vi dt = vi dt dt were vi is a velocity of head of the vector i. But, according to Eq. 1.37

(1.49)

vi = ω × i

(1.50)

˙i = ω × i

(1.51)

Hence Similarly j˙ = ω × j

and

k˙ = ω × k

(1.52)

Introducing the above expressions into Eq. 1.48 we have ˙ = A0 + ω × iAx + ω × jAy + ω × kAz = A0 + ω × (iAx + jAy + kAz ) A

(1.53)

and eventually one may gain ˙ = A0 + ω × A A

(1.54)

where: A0 = iA˙ x + jA˙ y + kA˙ z ω - is the absolute angular velocity of the rotating system of coordinates xyz along which the vector A was resolved to produce vector A0 A - is the diﬀerentiated vector. The last formula provides the rule for diﬀerentiation of a vector that it is resolved along a non-inertial system of coordinates. It can be applied to any vector (eg position vector, velocity, angular velocity etc.)

Figure 21 The absolute velocity of the particle P is vP = r˙ P = r0P + ω × rP

(1.56)

In a similar manner, as it was done in case of translating system of coordinates, we introduce notions of the relative velocity and the velocity of transportation. For the case of a particle motionless in the rotating system of coordinates, according to Eq. 1.56 the velocity of transportation is vT = ω × rP

(1.57)

For the case of motionless system of coordinates xyz ( ω = 0), according to Eq. 1.56 the relative velocity is (1.58) vR = r0P Hence vP = vR + vT

(1.59)

The absolute acceleration one may obtain diﬀerentiating equation 1.56 with respect to time. ¨ rP =

d 0 d rP + (ω × rP ) = r00P + ω × r0P + ω˙ × rP + ω × (r0P + ω × rP ) dt dt

MOTION IN TERMS OF THE NON-INERTIAL FRAMES (RELATIVE MOTION).

22

Introducing Eq. 1.43 and developing the last term we have aP = ¨ rP = r00P + ε × rP + ω × (ω × rP ) + 2 ω × r0P

(1.61)

Assuming that the point P is motionless (rP = constant) one may obtain the following expression for acceleration of transportation aT = ε × rP + ω × (ω × rP )

(1.62)

Here, the term ε × rP is called tangential acceleration of transportation and the term ω × (ω × rP ) is called normal acceleration of transportation. Assumption, that the system of coordinates is motionless yields expression for the relative acceleration. aR = r00 (1.63) The last term in equation 1.61 is called Coriolis acceleration aC . aC = 2 ω × r0

(1.64)

Now, we can state that the absolute acceleration is composed of acceleration of transportation, relative acceleration and Coriolis acceleration. (1.65)

aP = aT + aR + aC

1.2.3 Motion in terms of translating and rotating system of coordinates. Let us define motion of the translating and rotating system of coordinates xyz by the position vector ro and the vector of the angular velocity ω (see Fig..22). The relative motion of a point P with respect to the rotating and translating system of coordinates xyz is determined by a position vector rP,o . Hence, the absolute position vector rP in this case is rP = ro + rP,o (1.66) z P Z rP,o

Let us assume that the relative position vector rP,o is determined by its components along the translating and rotating system of coordinates xyz. rP,o = irP,ox + jrP,oy + krP,oz

(1.67)

According to the previously developed rules, the absolute velocity of the point P is r˙ P = r˙ o + r0P,o + ω × rP,o where r˙ o + ω × rP,o – velocity of transportation r0P,o – relative velocity The second derivative yields the absolute acceleration ro + r00P,o + ω × r0P ,o + ε × rP,o + ω × (r0P ,o + ω × rP,o ) ¨ rP = ¨ = ¨ ro + ε × rP,o + ω × ω × rP,o + r00P,o + 2 ω × r0P ,o Here: ¨ ro + ε × rP,o + ω × ω × rP,o = aT – acceleration of transportation r00P,o = aR – relative acceleration 2 ω × r0P ,o = aC – Coriolis acceleration.

Figure 1 To analyze motion of a rigid body usually we attach to the body a system of coordinates xyz at an arbitrarily chosen point o (see Fig.1). Such a system of coordinates is called body system of coordinates. The body system of coordinates, in a general case, may translate and rotate. Hence, motion of the rigid body may be determined in the same manner as the motion of the translating and rotating system of coordinates. As we remember, motion of the translating and rotating system of coordinates can be determined by a position vector ro and a vector of the angular velocity ω. The angular velocity ω of the body system of coordinates is called angular velocity of the rigid body. 2.1

GENERAL MOTION

DEFINITION: If the body system of coordinates translates and rotates, it is said that the body performs the general motion. Let the position of a point P with respect to the body system of coordinates (see

GENERAL MOTION

42

Fig.1) be defined by a position vector rP,o . Since components of the vector rP,o along the system of coordinates xyz are constant, the relative velocity of P with respect to the body system of coordinates, r0P ,o ,is always 0. Therefore its absolute velocity is vP = r˙ P = r˙ o + r˙ P,o = r˙ o + r0P ,o + ω × rP,o = r˙ o + ω × rP,o

(2.1)

Similarly, The absolute velocity of the point Q is vQ = r˙ o + ω × rQ,o

(2.2)

Hence, the relative velocity of the point Q with respect to the point P is vQP = vQ − vP = r˙ o + ω × rQ,o − (˙ro + ω × rP,o ) = ω × (rQ,o − rP,o ) = (2.3) ω × rQ,P The absolute acceleration of P is aP = ¨ rP = ¨ ro + ω˙ × rP,o + ω × (ω × rP,o )

(2.4)

The relative acceleration of the point Q with respect to the point P is aQP = aQ − aP = ¨ ro + ω˙ × rQ,o + ω × (ω × rQ,o ) − ¨ ro − ω˙ × rP,o − ω × (ω × rP,o ) = (2.5) = +ω˙ × rQ,P + ω × (ω × rQ,P ) The first term atQP = ω˙ × rQ,P

(2.6)

anQP = ω × (ω × rQ,P )

(2.7)

is called the tangential relative acceleration and the second one

is called the normal relative acceleration. For the kinetics purposes we are often interested in components of the absolute velocity of the centre of mass G along the body coordinates xyz. If position of the centre of mass is defined by a vector rG,o , the components of its absolute velocity along the body axes are vGx = i · (˙ro + ω × rG,o ) vGy = j · (˙ro + ω × rG,o ) vGz = k · (˙ro + ω × rG,o

(2.8)

The components of angular velocity along the body coordinates are ωx = i · ω ωy = j · ω ωz = k · ω

(2.9)

Absolute angular acceleration ε may be obtained as follow ε = ω˙ = ω0 + ω × ω = ω0

ROTATION ABOUT A POINT THAT IS FIXED IN THE INERTIAL SPACE (ROTATIONAL MOTION)

DEFINITION: If one point of the body considered is motionless with respect to the inertial frame, it is said that the body performs rotational motion. This motionless point is called centre of rotation and usually this centre is chosen as the origin of the body system of coordinates (see Fig. 2).

Figure 4 In Fig. 4, system of coordinates x11 , y11 , z11 is rigidly attached to the base 1 and rotates about the vertical axis Z of the inertial system of coordinates XY Z. The angular displacement α determines uniquely its instantaneous position. System of coordinates x21 , y12 , z12 is rigidly attached to the base 1 and it is turned by angle β about axis x11 . System of coordinates x2 , y2 , z2 is fixed to the rotor 2. Its axis y2 coincides axis y12 and its instantaneous position is determined by the angular displacement Ωt.

Let x1 y1 z1 be the body 1 system of coordinates. Its angular position with respect to the inertial system of coordinates XY Z, may be determined by angle α. Since the link 2 can rotate with respect to the link 1 about axis z1 only, the relative position of the body 2 system of coordinates x2 y2 z2 is uniquely determined by angle β. A. Matrices of direction cosines. From Fig. 6 one can see that the matrix of direction cosines between system of coordinates x1 y1 z1 and inertial system of coordinates XY Z has the following form ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤⎡ X 1 0 0 x1 ⎣ Y ⎦ = ⎣ 0 cos α − sin α ⎦ ⎣ y1 ⎦ (2.16) z1 Z 0 sin α cos α

B. Positions of individual links. To find positions of individual links let us consider the following vector equation rC + rBC = rA + rBA

(2.19)

Kc + JrBC = IrA + j2 lAB

or The above equation is equivalent to 3 scalar equations which may be obtained by subsequent multiplication its both sides by unit vectors I, J, K. 0 = rA + I · j2 lAB rBC = J · j2 lAB c = K · j2 lAB

(2.21)

The dot products, appearing in the above equations, can be taken directly from matrix 2.18. 0 = rA − lAB sin β rBC = lAB cos α cos β c = lAB sin α cos β

Hence,

The three above equations determine position of all links for any instant of time. C. Angular velocities of individual links. Since the link 1 performs rotational motion about axis X, its absolute angular velocity ω 1 may be obtained by diﬀerentiation of 2.26 with respect to time. ω 1 = Iα˙

To determine the direction cosines between the axis y and axes of the inertial system of coordinates, let us consider equation rC = rA + rCA

(2.41)

the wanted direction cosines are rCX a rCY j · J = cos∠jJ = a ZA j · K = cos∠jK = − a j · I = cos∠jI =

yields The second equation for determination of the unknown rCX and rCY one may obtain by consideration of the following vector equation rC = rB + rCB

(2.47)

rCB = rB − rC

(2.48)

It follows that Multiplication of the above equation by unit vectors I, J and K respectively yields components of the vector rCB along the initial system of coordinates. rCBX = rB · I − rC · I = −rCX rCBY

Therefore the second equation for determination of the components rCX and rCY takes form ¶2 µq 2 2 2aZA − ZA −rCY + a2 = 2a2 (2.51) rCX +

The above equation together with Eq. 2.46 form set of two equations that determine the components rCX and rCY as explicit functions of time.

If the mass is constant, the second law can be rewritten in more simple way. F = m¨ r

(3.2)

If the position vector r and force F are determined by its components along the absolute rectangular system of coordinates (r = IrX + JrY + KrZ , F = IFX + JFY + KFZ ) the above equation is equivalent to three scalar equations. rX FX = m¨ FY = m¨ rY FZ = m¨ rZ

If number of particles n is relatively low, we are able to produce free body diagram for each particle separately and create 3n diﬀerential equations which permit each

This chapter is concerned with formulation of equations of motion of any system of particles regardless of their number and internal forces acting between the individual particles. Because each continuum (fluid, gas, rigid or elastic body) can be considered as system of particles, the derived equations form a base for development of many branches of mechanics (fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, etc.).

MOMENT OF MOMENTUM.

Considering system of particles, always three kinds of moment of momentum (angular momentum) are introduced. 1. Angular momentum about a fixed point in the inertial space. 2. Angular momentum about a moving point in the inertial space. 3. Relative angular momentum about a moving point in the inertial space. In this paragraph the three above types of angular momentum are defined and discussed. 3.2.1 Moment of momentum about a fixed point in the inertial space. Let mi be a particle which belongs to a system of N particles and ri be its position vector in the inertial space XY Z (Fig. 4). DEFINITION: The following vector HO =

i=1 ri

(3.15)

The left hand side of equation 3.21 represents resultant moment MO of all external forces acting on the system of particles with respect to the fixed point O. Hence, we may conclude this paragraph with the following statement. STATEMENT: The rate of change of the angular momentum of a system of particles about a fixed point is equal to the sum of moments of all external forces acting on the system of particles about that point. ˙ O = MO H

(3.22)

If the arbitrarily chosen point C coincides the gravity centre G (˙rC = r˙ G ), the above formula yields ˙ G = MG H (3.29) The last relationship allows to formulate the following statement.

The above considerations allows to formulate the following statement. STATEMENT: The rate of change of the relative angular momentum about the centre of gravity is equal to moment of all external forces acting on the system of particles about that centre. Taking into account that the right hand sides of equations 3.35 and 3.29 are equal, we arrive to conclusion that ˙ G = h˙ G H

and

HG = hG

(3.36)

The last expression is obvious because for motionless system of particles both moments of momentum are equal to 0. 3.3

EQUATIONS OF MOTION AND THEIR FIRST INTEGRALS.

In the previous sections of this chapter four vectorial equations has been derived. Not all of them are independent. The independent pairs of equations are. ½ ½ ½ ˙ =F ˙ =F ˙ =F P P P (3.37) ˙ G = MG ˙ O = MO H H h˙ G = MG Depending on the dynamic problem to be solved, we can choose one of these three pairs of equations. Each of them is equivalent to six scalar equations. It means, that these problems can only be solved, without additional equations expressing interaction between individual particles, which have six scalar unknown only. Very small range of dynamic problems fulfil these requirements. 3.3.1 Conservation of momentum principle. Let us assumed that the component of the resultant of all external forces F along the fixed in the inertial space axis defined by the unit vector λ is equal to zero. Z

Let us consider the system of particles limited by the boundary shown in Fig. 14a) by the dash-dot line. This system is assembled of the rotating part 1 and water that is shadowed in Fig. 14a). Axes XY Z forms the inertial system of coordinates and axes xyz are attached to the part 1. The forces F represents external forces acting on the system of particles due to its interaction with the stationary part 2. The resultant force due to gravitation is denoted by G. The friction between the rotating and stationary part of the sprinkler is represented by moment M. The pressure p is due to interaction of particles of water that belong to the system and the cut-oﬀ stream of water. All the above specified forces should be classified as external with respect to the system considered. The atmospheric pressure is evenly distributed over the entire outer surface of the system of particles. Since its resultant is always equal to zero, it is not shown in this diagram. Position of the particles shown in the Fig. 14a) corresponds to an arbitrarily chosen instant of time t. Fig. 14b) presents position of these particles after a small increment in time ∆t. The increment in the linear momentum associated with the increment of time ∆t is due to volume of water B and C as well as loss of water in the volume E. Let us produce expression for the linear momentum of particles in the volume B. If the diameter of the nozzle is small with respect to the distance R, one can assume B that all particles that belong to the volume B have the same absolute velocity vA .

Figure 1 The rigid body can be considered as a system of particles assembled of infinitesimal elements dm which positions with respect to the body frame is given by the position vector ri,o . The mass of an individual element dm is (4.1)

dm = ρ(xyz)dxdydz

where ρ is density. Hence, the total mass of the rigid body can be expressed as follow Z ZZZ ρ(xyz)dxdydz = dm (4.2) m= V

The centre of gravity of the rigid body, according to the above notations, with respect to the body system of coordinates is Z 1 rG,o = ri,o dm (4.3) m m

LINEAR AND ANGULAR MOMENTUM.

97

According to consideration in the previous chapter linear momentum P is P = r˙ G m

(4.4)

r˙ G = r˙ o + r˙ G,o = r˙ o + r0G,o + ω × rG,o = r˙ o + ω × rG,o

(4.5)

where Introducing Eq. 4.5 into Eq. 4.4 one can obtain P = (˙ro + ω × rG,o )m

(4.6)

Angular relative momentum of the element dm with respect to the origin o is dho = ri,o × r˙ i,o dm = ri,o × (r0i ,o + ω × ri,o )dm = ri,o × (+ω × ri,o )dm Hence, the total angular relative momentum has form Z ho = ri,o × (+ω × ri,o )dm

Let us calculate the triple cross product, ri,o × (ω × ri,o ) = ω · (ri,o · ri,o ) − ri,o · (ri,o · ω)

If both vectors involved are given by their components along the body system of coordinates, namely ω = iω x + jω y + kωz

and

ri,o = ix + jy + kz

(4.10)

the triple product is as follows. ri,o × (ω × ri,o ) = (iω x + jω y + kω z )(x2 + y 2 + z 2 ) − (ix + jy + kz)(xω x + yω y + zω z ) = i(ω x (y 2 + z 2 ) − xyωy − xzω z ) +j(ω y (x2 + z 2 ) − yxω x − yzω z ) (4.11) +k(ωz (x2 + y 2 ) − zxωx − zyω y ) Hence ho =

Introduce new body system of coordinates x2 , y2 , z2 which has the same origin O, but it is turned with respect to the first one.

Or in shorter form, {ho }1 = [I]1 {ω}1

(4.34)

Similarly But {ho }2 = [C1→2 ]{h}1

and

{ω}2 = [C1→2 ]{ω}1

(4.35)

Hence, introducing Eq. 4.35 into 4.34 yields [C1→2 ]{h}1 = [I]2 [C1→2 ]{ω}1

(4.36)

Upon introducing 4.33 into the above formula we have [C1→2 ][I]1 {ω}1 = [I]2 [C1→2 ]{ω}1

The last equation, if developed, forms an algebraic equation of third order. Hence, it has three roots. It may be proved that for any matrix of inertia [I]1 , the roots of equation 4.46 Ixp , Iyp , Izp are always real and positive. For each of these roots the sets of equations 4.44 becomes linearly dependent.

Figure 10 The rigid body, shown in the figure 10, rotates about a fixed point O. To analyze its motion it is necessary to know the principal axes through the point O and principal moments of inertia.

Since the object is flat, the principal axis zp must coincide the axis z. The directional cosines between the principal axis xp and axes x and y may be obtained from the following set of equations. (10 − 12.6)t11 + (−5)t12 = 0 t211 + t212 = 0

Therefore the axis X coincides with the principal axis Xp and the root associated with the first raw of the determinant 4.91 ( 53 ml2 = 1.666ml2 ) stands for the moment of inertia about the principal axis Xp . IXp = 1.666ml2

(4.92)

Indeed, if the matrix of directional cosines is of the following form ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ t11 t12 t13 cosh(Xp X) cosh(Xp Y ) cosh(Xp Z) CXY Z→Xp Yp Zp = ⎣ t21 t22 t23 ⎦ = ⎣ cosh(Yp X) cosh(Yp Y ) cosh(Yp Z) ⎦ cosh(Zp X) cosh(Zp Y ) cosh(Zp Z) t31 t32 t33 (4.93) the equations for determination of its elements associated with the above root are 5 ( − 1.666)t11 + (0) t12 + (0) t13 = 0 3 2 (0) t11 + ( − 1.666)t12 − (0.5) t13 = 0 3 5 (0) t11 − (0.5) t12 + ( − 1.666)t13 = 0 3

(4.94)

The first equation is fulfilled for any magnitudes of t11 , t12 and t13 . The two last equations if and only if t12 = t13 = 0. Because t211 + t212 + t213 = 1

the magnitude of t11 must be 1. Hence h(Xp X) = 0, h(Xp Y ) = 90o h(Xp Z) = 90o

(4.96)

Let us assign the remaining roots as follows IY p = 1.873ml2 and IZp = 0.459ml2

(4.97)

The axis Y is located by the directional cosines linked with second raw of 4.93. They are 5 ( − 1.873)t21 + (0)t22 + (0) t23 = 0 3 2 (0) t21 + ( − 1.873)t22 − (0.5) t23 = 0 3 t221 + t222 + t223 = 1

(4.98)

t21 = 0, t22 = ±0.3823, t23 = ∓0.9236

(4.99)

They are fulfilled for

Hence the angles between axis Yp and XY Z are h(Yp X) = 90o , h(Yp Y ) = 67.52o h(Yp Z) = 157.45

(4.100)

h(Yp X) = 90o , h(Yp Y ) = 112.47o h(Yp Z) = 22.54

(4.101)

The axis Z is located by the directional cosines linked with third raw of 4.93. They are 5 ( − 0.459)t31 + (0)t32 + (0) t33 = 0 3 2 (0) t31 + ( − 0.459)t32 − (0.5) t33 = 0 3 t231 + t232 + t233 = 1

(4.102)

These equations are fulfilled for t31 = 0, t32 = ±0.92360, t33 = ±0.3823

(4.103)

Hence the angles between axis Zp and XY Z are h(Zp X) = 90o , h(Zp Y ) = 22.54o h(Zp Z) = 67.52o

(4.104)

h(Zp X) = 90o , h(Zp Y ) = 157.45 h(Zp Z) = 112.47o

(4.110)

(ri × r˙ i )dm = dHO Hence

1 dT = ω·dHO 2 Upon integrating of Eq. 4.111 over the entire body we are finally getting ⎤ ⎡ ωx T = 12 ω · HO = 12 [ωx , ω y , ω z ][I] ⎣ ω y ⎦ ωz

where: [I] - is inertia matrix about system of coordinates through centre of gravity of the body. ωx , ω y , ω z -are components of the angular velocity of the body along that system of coordinates. The last formula permits to formulate the following statement. STATEMENT: Kinetic energy of a rigid body is equal to the sum of its energy in the translational motion with velocity of its centre of gravity (energy of translation) and the energy in the rotational motion about its centre of gravity (energy of rotation).

The link 1 performs the rotational motion about axis Z which is fixed in the inertial space. Therefore its kinetic energy is 1 T1 = I1Z ω 21 2

(4.120)

The link 2 performs the general motion in the inertial space. Therefore its kinetic energy is determined by the following equation. ⎤⎡ ⎤ ⎡ 0 ω 2x2 I2x2 0 1 1 2 T2 = m2 vG + [ω 2x2, ω2y2, ω2z2 ] ⎣ 0 I2y2 0 ⎦ ⎣ ω 2y2, ⎦ (4.121) 2 2 0 0 I2z2 ω 2z2 In the above equation vG stands for the absolute velocity of the centre of gravity of the link 2 and ω2x2, ω 2y2, ω 2z2 are components of its absolute angular velocity.

The angular displacement β is not an independent variable. There is a relationship between the variable β and the independent coordinate α imposed by the kinematic constrains. To develop this relationship let us consider the vector equation shown in Fig. 37. −→ −−→ −−→ CO + OD = CD (4.130) or Ja+j1 (a + b cos β) = I (−R sin γ) + JR cos γ

(4.131)

Multiplication of the above equation by the unit vectors I and J results in the following set of scalar algebraic equations I · Ja+I · j1 (a + b cos β) = I · I (−R sin γ) + I · JR cos γ J · Ja+J · j1 (a + b cos β) = J · I (−R sin γ) + J · JR cos γ

(4.132)

or − sin α (a + b cos β) = −R sin γ a + cos α (a + b cos β) = R cos γ

(4.133)

Hence R2 = sin2 α (a + b cos β)2 + a2 + 2a cos α (a + b cos β) + cos2 α (a + b cos β)2 R2 = (a + b cos β)2 + a2 + 2a cos α (a + b cos β) (4.134) or (a + b cos β)2 + 2a cos α (a + b cos β) − (R2 − a2 ) = 0

(4.135)

z 2 + (2a cos α) z − (R2 − a2 ) = 0

Figure 38 in the inertial system of coordinates XY Z. Let vG be its absolute velocity of its centre of gravity G and ω its absolute angular velocity. To derive the formula for the linear momentum P let us introduce a body system of coordinates xyz. The body system of coordinates has its origin at the body centre of gravity G and its axes coincides principal axes of inertia. Such selection of the body system of coordinates, according to considerations in the previous section, is always possible. The linear momentum of the body considered is P = mvG

(4.142)

If components of velocity vG along the body system of coordinates are known vG = ivGx + jvGy + kvGz

(4.143)

the first derivative of the linear momentum is 0 ˙ = m(vG P + ω × vG )

The above vector equation is equivalent to three following scalar equations m(v˙ Gx + vGz ωy − vGy ω z ) = Fx m(v˙ Gy + vGx ω z − vGz ωx ) = Fy m(v˙ Gz + vGy ωx − vGx ωy ) = Fz

(4.147)

Components of moment of the relative momentum, according to Eq. 4.15, in the case considered may be adopted in the following form. ⎤ ⎡ ⎤⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ 0 ωx hGx IGx 0 IGx ω x ⎣ hGy ⎦ = ⎣ 0 IGy 0 ⎦ ⎣ ωy ⎦ = ⎣ IGy ω y ⎦ (4.148) 0 0 IGz hGz ωz IGz ω z

Taking into account the above relationship, the equation 4.141 may be transformed to form 4.149. h˙ G = h0G +ω × hG

Now, one can formulate three additional scalar equations. IGx ω˙ x + (IGz − IGy )ωz ωy = MGz IGy ω˙ y + (IGx − IGz )ω x ω z = MGy IGz ω˙ z + (IGy − IGx )ω y ω x = MGz

(4.150)

Eventually, we obtained six independent equations which allow to obtain either kinematic parameters (ω and vG ) in case all the external forces are known, or resultant external force F and resultant moment MG one has to apply to the rigid body to keep it going according to the assumed motion.

Rotational motion In a case, when the rigid body performs the rotational motion about the point O which is fixed in the inertial space (see Fig. 39) it can be considered as system with three degree of freedom.

Hence, the equation 4.151 may be rewritten as follows

˙ O = H0O + ω × HO = MO H

In a similar way to that shown in the previous paragraph, one may transform the above equation into three equivalent equations known as Euler’s equations. IOx ω˙ x + (IOz − IOy )ωz ωy = MOz IOy ω˙ y + (IOx − IOz )ω x ω z = MOy IOz ω˙ z + (IOy − IOx )ω y ω x = MOz

Let ω be the angular velocity of the rotating system of coordinates xyz and the body rotates about its axis of symmetry z with the angular velocity Ω with respect to the rotating system of coordinates xyz. Hence the absolute angular velocity of the body considered is ω A = ω + Ω = i(ω x ) + j(ω y ) + k(ωz + Ω)

(4.173)

Similar consideration to this in the previous section leads to conclusion that the components of the angular momentum about the point O are ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ 0 HOx ωx IO 0 IO ω x ⎣ HOy ⎦ = ⎣ 0 IO 0 ⎦ ⎣ ω y ⎦ = ⎣ ⎦ IO ω y (4.174) 0 0 IOz HOz ωz + Ω IOz (ωz + Ω)

which permit the unknown vector ω to be obtained. The above equations are known as modified Euler’s equations. The equation 4.158, if treated in the same way as it has been done in the previous section, yields m(v˙ Gx + vGz ω y − vGy ω z ) = Fx m(v˙ Gy + vGx ω z − vGz ω x ) = Fy m(v˙ Gz + vGy ω x − vGx ω y ) = Fz ‘

Figure 51 To record the angular velocity α˙ of the floating platform 1 about the vertical axis Y a gyroscope was installed as presented in Fig. 51. The shown spring, of a stiﬀness k, keeps the ring 2 in the horizontal position (ϑ = 0) if the platform does not rotate (α˙ = 0). The damper c produces a moment which can be approximated by a linear function Mc = −cϑ˙ (4.202) The ring 2 may be considered as massless. The gyroscope 3 is symmetrical with respect to its axis of relative rotation z2 and its moments of inertia are Ix2 = Iy2 = I, and Iz2 . The gyroscope rotates, relative to the ring 2, with the constant angular velocity Ω. Upon assuming that the platform can rotate about a vertical axis only, derive the relationship between its constant angular velocity α˙ = p and angular position of the gyroscope ϑ.

EQUATIONS OF MOTION

164

Solution. The system of coordinates x1 y1 z1 ,which is attached to the platform, rotates with respect to the inertial frame XY Z with angular velocity ω 1 . ω1 = j1 α˙ = j2 α˙ cos ϑ − k2 α˙ sin ϑ

(4.203)

The relative angular velocity of the ring 2 with respect to the system of coordinate x1 y1 z1 is ω21 = i2 ϑ˙

(4.204)

Therefore, the absolute angular velocity of the system of coordinates x2 y2 z2 is ω2 = ω1 + ω21 = i2 ϑ˙ + j2 α˙ cos ϑ + k2 (−α˙ sin ϑ)

(4.205)

Since the gyroscope 3 rotates about its axis of symmetry z2 with relative velocity Ω, the modified Euler’s equations may be used to derive its equations of motion. I ω˙ x2 + (Iz2 − I)ω y2 ω z2 + Iz2 Ωω y2 = Mx2 I ω˙ y2 − (Iz2 − I)ωx2 ωz2 − Iz2 Ωω x2 = My2 ˙ = Mz2 Iz2 (ω˙ z2 + Ω)

(4.206)

Since the ring 2 is massless its equilibrium conditions yields Mx2 = −kϑ − cϑ˙

(4.207)

Introduction of Eq’s. 4.205) and (4.207) into the first equation of the set 4.206 produces equation of motion of the gyroscope. I ϑ˙ + (Iz2 − I)(−α˙ 2 sin ϑ cos ϑ) + Iz2 Ωα˙ cos ϑ = −kϑ − cϑ˙

(4.208)

Because for a constant angular velocity α˙ = α˙ o the angle ϑo is supposed to be constant, the above equation yields (Iz2 − I)(−α˙ 2o sin ϑo cos ϑo ) + Iz2 Ωα˙ o cos ϑo = −kϑo

(4.209)

If angular velocity ϑo IOz = 0.000482kgm2 the static characteristic of the gyroscope for a few values of angular velocity (Ωo = 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25s−1 ) is shown in Fig. 69.For high angular velocity Ωo = 25s−1 (see Fig. 70) the gyroscope can perform the fast and slow regular precession p for any mutation angle Θo . If angular velocity Ωo is slower e.g. Ωo = 15s−1 , the gyroscope can perform regular precession only for certain range of angle of mutation Θo . Fig. 71 present static characteristics for r = 0.015m. In this case IO = 0.000388kgm2 < IOz = 0.000482kgm2 . The presented characteristics determine regular precession which may be obtained only for certain set of initial conditions which strictly correspond to the assumed form of particular solution 4.226. More particular solution can be obtained by numerical integration of the mathematical model 4.225.∂ Numerical solution of equations of motion. Fig. 73. presents a few numerical solutions carried out for r = .025m. The diagrams in this figure show instantaneous positions yG of the point G of the gyroscope versus its angle of precession Φ. For all cases the initial speed of the gyroscope was assumed to be Ωi = 15s−1 . Fig 73A presents solution for initial conditions chosen in vicinity of upper ˙ i = 0, Φi = 0, Φ˙ i = 0, Ωi = 15s−1 ). equilibrium position Θo = 0(Θi = 0.01s−1 , Θ Since the gyroscope can not perform regular precession (see Fig. 70), it execute large oscillations. Fig. 73B corresponds to situation when the gyroscope, performing regular ˙ o = 0, Φ˙ o = p1 = 25s−1 , Ωo = 15s−1 see Fig. 70) was pushed precession (Θo = 1.26, Θ ˙ i = 8s−1 . Due to the following initial out of its motion at t = 0 with initial velocity Θ ˙ i = 8s−1 , Φi = 0, Φ˙ i = 0, Ωi = 15s−1 the gyroscope conditions Θi = 1.26rad, Θ performs small oscillation around regular precession. Similar behavior can be observed if it is pushed out of its regular fast precession ˙ o = 0, Φ˙ o = p2 = 136, Ωo = 15 see Fig. 70). This situation is (Θo = 1.26rad, Θ presented in Fig. 73C. Figures 73D and 73E show solution of disturbed motion of the gyroscope about ˙ slow (Φo = 16.17s−1 ) and fast (Φ˙ o = −77.1s−1 ) precession which correspond to angle of mutation Θo = 2.51rad (see Fig. 70). Those solution were obtained for initial ˙ i = 8s−1 , Φi = 0, Φ˙ i = 16.170s−1 , Ωi = 15s−1 and conditions Θi = 2.51rad, Θ −1 ˙ i = 8s , Φi = 0, Φ˙ i = −77.1s−1 , Ωi = 15s−1 respectively.
