# What is torsional oscillation?

Torsional oscillation is the vibration on a motor shaft that is caused by harmonics in the motor.

### What is torsional critical speed?

The term torsional critical speed of centrifugal pumps and associated drive equipment refers to the speed of a pump rotor or related rotating system that corresponds to a resonant frequency of torsional vibration of the rotating system. Torsional critical speeds are associated with torsional or angular deflection of the rotor and are not to be confused with lateral critical speeds associated with lateral deflection. The two are separate entities. A given rotor or rotating system… Read More

### What is the torsional rigidity of a shaft?

It is defined as ratio of the product of modulus of rigidity and polar moment of inertia to the length of the shaft. Torsional Rigidity is caluclated as: Torsional Rigidity= C J/l Read More

### Is oscillation a wave?

NO,oscillation is not necessarily a wave because energy is not transported in oscillation.In oscillation there is no space periodicity.An oscillation is periodic in time only where as a wave is periodic in time and space both. Read More

### How can you use oscillation in a sentence?

### What is undamped oscillation?

An oscillation in which the amplitude remains constant with respect to time. Read More

### What is a subsequent oscillation?

It is an oscillation that occurs constantly or in order with respect to the perod of oscillations Read More

### What is a sentence using the word oscillation?

### Moment of inertia and torsional vibrations?

in torsional vibrations moment of inertia is a very important determining factor. it is a quantitative measure of the resistance of an object to torsion. it is synonymous to mass in displacement systems. the greater the moment of inertia the lesser the degree of torsional vibrations and vice versa. moment of inertia relates torsional vibrations to the geometry of the part considered irrespective of its composing material and its strength.

### Is oscillation not a factor in sound generation of a synthesizer?

Oscillation IS a factor in sound generation of a synthesizer. Read More

### Howmuch amplitude for one oscillation?

Frictional forces is one of the oscillation. T the moment this is at rest. Read More

### How does surface area affect damping of an oscillation?

The larger the surface area, the larger the damping of an oscillation Read More

### What is the swing of a pendulum?

The swing of a pendulum is called an oscillation. The furthest point in each oscillation is the amplitude. Read More

### What is difference between torsional rigidity and lateral rigidity?

The torsional rigidity comes from the torso. The lateral rigidity would come from the arms and the legs becoming stiff. Read More

### What is amplitude of oscillation?

The maximum distance that pendulum moves away from its position at rest is called the amplitude of oscillation. Read More

### What is he meaning of oscillation?

oscillation is nothing but producing an sine wave with constant amplitudes or silmply we can say a vibrations. Read More

### What quantity measures the number of complete cycles an oscillation makes per second?

That's the "frequency" of the oscillation. Read More

### Define damped oscillation?

Any oscillation in which the amplitude of the oscillating quantity decreases with time is referred as damped oscillation. Also known as damped vibration, http://www.answers.com/topic/damped-harmonic-motion Read More

### Mass and pendulum oscillation?

Mass oscillation time period = 2 pi sq rt. (m/k) Pendulum oscillation time period = 2 pi sq rt. (l/g) Read More

### What is negative damping?

It is the opposite of normal damping (oscillation decreases), so in negative damping to get even bigger oscillation. Read More

### Does the torsional pendulum depend on acceleration due to gravity?

No, a torsional pendulum works with the restoring force provided by the elasticity of the support rod, or (in clocks and watches) by the spring on the balance-wheel. Read More

### What is torsional strain?

"Torsional strain" is the strain induced by applying torque. Basically, it is the strain imposed on a body by twisting it. (Such as the strain that a bolt endures when you use a wrench on it.) Read More

### Difference between damped and forced oscillation?

Damped (or free) oscillation occurs when an object is set to vibrate at its natural frequency while forced oscillation involves the application of a force to keep an object in constant or repetitive motion. Read More

### How damping progressively reduces the amplitude of oscillation?

When energy is lost from the oscillating system, the amplitude of oscillation decreases. When that happens progressively, we say that the oscillation is "damped". "Damping" is a description of the decrease, not its cause. Read More

### What are the natural frequencies of oscillation formed in a pipe?

The definition of the word oscillation is "movement back and forth at a regular speed." Read More

### Difference between wave and oscillation?

an oscillation is a disturbance in space that does not move in time and a wave is a propagated distrbance in space and time. Read More

### When is Torsion used in everyday life?

When ever you cross a bridge torsional strain is at work, the engineers utilized it to determine the payload of each bridge and your car creates torsional strain on the bridges members. Read More

### When was Ubiquitous Frequency Oscillation - UFO - created?

Ubiquitous Frequency Oscillation - UFO - was created on 2009-07-02. Read More

### What is center of oscillation?

center of oscillation means the point at the pendulum which oscillate by making higher displacement through it than other points. Read More

### The length of one complete wave or cycle of oscillation?

The length of one complete wave or cycle of oscillation is a wavelength. Read More

### What is a baryon acoustic oscillation?

A baryon acoustic oscillation is one of the regular periodic fluctuations in the density of the visible baryonic matter of the universe. Read More

### Why a occilator requires positive feedback?

A: How else can it sustain oscillation. If the feedback dies so does the oscillation it must have a continuous positive input. Read More

Torsion = turning Oscillation = repeated motion toraion oscillation is repeated turing back and forth. Imagine you have a weight hanging on the end of a piece of string. Twist the weight and, when released, it will oscillate torsionally. Read More
