About

Python library that approximates the natural frequency from stress via physical dualism, and vice versa.

This work is a part of the investigation within the research project [ON174027], supported by the Ministry for Science and Technology, Republic of Serbia. This support is gratefully acknowledged.

Installation

To install physical_dualism run:

$ pip install physical_dualism

Usage examples

Quick start:

>>> from physical_dualism import approximate_natural_frequency_from_stress

>>> mode = 1
>>> a = 2310.0 # [mm] strip length
>>> sigma_cr = 19.4754 # [MPa] critical buckling stress
>>> ro = 10000.0 / 10**9 # [kg/mm**3] mass density

# Mass matrix expects mass density normalized to 1 [m] of length, even if everything is done in [mm]
>>> ro /= 10**3

# [rad/s] natural frequency approximated from critical buckling stress
>>> print "%.4f" % approximate_natural_frequency_from_stress(mode, a, sigma_cr, ro)
60.0179

Please see the fsm_eigenvalue source code for more examples.
