## Stability of a Two Wheel Vehicle Moving in Curved Path

Like a four wheel vehicle, a two wheel vehicle will also be subjected to gyroscopic and centrifugal couple when it takes a turn on a curved path. Let us consider a two wheel vehicle, (say, a scooter or a motor bicycle) taking a...

## Stability of a Four Wheel Moving in Curved Path

Consider any four wheel automobile (say, car) having wheels A, B, C and D, taking a turn towards left on a curved path, as shown in Fig (a). The wheels A and C are inner wheels, whereas B and D are outer wheels. While the vehicle...

## Gyroscopic Effect on Naval Ship (or Sea Vessels)

Before discussing the gyroscopic effect on naval ships, first let us brief the terminology used in connection with the naval ship. Ship Terminology The front, top, and side views of a naval ship are shown in fig (a), (b) and (c)...

## Precessional Angular Motion – theteche.com

We already know that the angular acceleration is the rate of change of angular velocity. It is a vector quantity and can be represented both in magnitude and direction with the help of right hand screw rule. A body rotating in a...

## Wilson Hartnell Governor (Radial Spring Governor)

The spring controlled governor of the Wilson Hartnell type is shown in Fig. In this governor, the bell crank levers are pivoted at the ends of two arms which rotate with the spindle. The vertical arms of the bell crank lever...

## Centrifugal Governors – Principle of Working

Governor Arrangement This is the most common type of governor. In the centrifugal type governors, rotation of the crank shaft is taken to a vertical spindle through suitable gears. It consists of two balls of equal mass, which...

## Governor Vs Flywheel – theteche.com

Function of Governor The function of a governor is to automatically maintain the speed of an engine within specified limits whenever there is a variation of load. If the load on the engine increases, its speed decreases. So it...

## Forced Vibrations with Harmonic Excitation

So far, we have discussed the free vibrations of systems where a system once disturbed from its equilibrium position executes vibration indefinitely because of its elastic properties. In actual practice, this system will come to...
