Abstract

Introducing the planes of symmetry into an oscillating rigid body suspended by springs simplifies the complexity of the equations of motion and decouples the modes of vibration into in-plane and out-of-plane modes. There have been some research results from the investigation into the conditions for planes of symmetry in which prior conditions for the simplification of the equations of motion are required. In this article, the conditions for the planes of symmetry that do not need prior conditions for simplification are presented. The conditions are derived from direct expansions of eigenvalue problems for stiffness and mass matrices that are expressed in terms of in-plane and out-of-plane modes and the orthogonality condition with respect to the mass matrix. Two special points, the planar couple point and the perpendicular translation point are identified, where the expressions for stiffness and compliance matrices can be greatly simplified. The simplified expressions are utilized to obtain the analytical expressions for the axes of vibration of a vibration system with planes of symmetry.
