dc.description.abstractIn order to determine the effect of a non-linear spring characteristic on the vibrations of a torsional system, Investigations were made to determine the response curves of a given system when the drive was made through a non-linear coupling and when made through a comparable shaft. The results showed the maximum amplitude for the former case to be about one-fourth of that for the latter. However when the difference In damping was accounted for, the non-linear coupling showed a reduction in amplitude of vibration to about one-half that of the comparable linear system. An analytical solution including damping is given, and suggestions are made for further study.en_US
