This lesson covers the study of the vibration of circular membranes, a crucial aspect of continuous systems. The lesson delves into the eigenvalue problem for circular membranes, which helps determine the natural frequencies and mode shapes, essential parameters for the design of any structural component. The lesson also discusses the Laplacian operator in polar coordinates, the equation of motion of the membrane, and the concept of free vibration. The lesson further explores the use of Bessel functions to solve the differential equation of motion and the approximation of natural frequencies. The lesson concludes with a discussion on mode shapes and nodal lines or circles.
