Torsional vibration is an oscillatory angular motion casing twisting in the shaft of a system; the oscillatory motion is superimposed on the steady rotational motion of a rotating/reciprocating machine. Even though the vibration cannot be detected without specific measuring instrument, its amplitude can be destructive. Motion is rarely a concern with Torsional vibration unless it affects the function of a system. It affects the functional integrity and life of components and thus determines the allowable magnitude of the Torsional vibration. Torsional vibratory motion can produce stress reversals that cause metal fatigue. Components tolerate less reversed stress that steady stress. In addition, stress concentration factor associated with machine members decrease the effectiveness of load bearing materials. By using this Model can be calculate the longitudinal and Torsional natural frequencies, forced response analysis, to calculate the vibratory torque acting on the shaft (system), perform the forced response analysis to assess Torsional vibration to avoid Torsional resonances and excessive Torsional we recommended changes such as , but not limited to. The main aim of the project is to design and fabricate Torsional vibration system and find natural frequency of different materials at different lengths.
