Glossary:Self-excited vibrations

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Self-excited vibrations occur when the forcing function is a function of the displacement, velocity, or acceleration of the system mass. If the energy gained from the self-excited vibrations is more than the system can absorb, the system will self-destruct.
