This lesson covers the concept of torsional vibration of a bar, focusing on the derivation of the governing differential equations using Newton's second law and Hamilton's principle. It also discusses the natural frequencies and mode shapes in axial vibration, and how force vibration problems can be formulated considering damping. The lesson further explains the principal modes of vibrations in real structures and how to isolate a particular mode of vibration. It also discusses the effects of torsion, the concept of axial torsion, and the disasters caused by torsional motion in structures like elevated water tanks during earthquakes. The lesson concludes with the application of these concepts in solving practical problems related to machine components and structures.
