Dynamic Analysis Of Machine Foundation
The analysis and design of machine foundation requires more attention since it involves not only the static loads but also the dynamic loads caused by the working of the machine. The limiting amplitude and operating frequency of a machine are the most important parameters to be considered in analysis of machine foundation. The Elastic half space analogy method with embedment coefficients can be used for coupled modes of vibration to get the natural frequencies and amplitudes of foundation vibrations. With effect to depth of embedment there has been increase in natural frequency but considerable decrease in amplitude of foundation vibrations.
