Abstract: Abstract This paper describes a new device, the mechanical-transients analyzer, for solving transient-vibration problems by the principle of electrical-mechanical analogy. Analogous electrical circuits are used to represent a mechanical system. For these, special low-loss electrical elements have been developed so that low-loss mechanical systems can be studied. The transient excitation functions, such as force, displacement, or velocity, are applied to the equivalent mechanical circuit as trans…
