Elastic Deformation of Solids
A
deformation
is the change in size or shape of an
object.
An elastic object is one that returns to its original size
and shape after contact forces have been removed. If
the forces acting on the object are too large, the object
can be permanently distorted.

Overdamped
: The system returns to equilibrium without
oscillating. Larger values of the damping the return to
equilibrium slower.
Critically damped
: The system returns to equilibrium as
quickly as possible without oscillating. This is often
desired for the damping of systems such as doors.
Underdamped
: The system oscillates (with a slightly
different frequency than the undamped case) with the
amplitude gradually decreasing to zero.

The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge opened to traffic on July 1, 1940. It
collapsed four months later on November 7, 1940, at 11:00 AM (Pacific
time) due to a physical phenomenon known as aeroelastic flutter caused
by a 67 kilometres per hour (42 mph) wind.
The bridge collapse had lasting effects on science and engineering. In
many undergraduate physics texts the event is presented as an example of
elementary forced resonance with the wind providing an external periodic
frequency that matched the natural structural frequency (even though the
real cause of the bridge's failure was aeroelastic flutter[1]).
Its failure also boosted research in the field of bridge aerodynamics/
aeroelastics which have themselves influenced the designs of all the
world's great long

span bridges built since 1940.

Aeroelasticity is the science which studies the
interactions among inertial, elastic, and aerodynamic
forces. It was defined by Arthur Collar in 1947 as "the
study of the mutual interaction that takes place within
the triangle of the inertial, elastic, and aerodynamic
forces acting on structural members exposed to an
airstream, and the influence of this study on design."

Flutter
Flutter is a self

feeding and potentially destructive vibration where aerodynamic forces on an object couple with a
structure's natural mode of vibration to produce rapid periodic motion. Flutter can occur in any object within a strong
fluid flow, under the conditions that a positive feedback occurs between the structure's natural vibration and the
aerodynamic forces. That is, that the vibrational movement of the object increases an aerodynamic load which in turn
drives the object to move further. If the energy during the period of aerodynamic excitation is larger than the natural
damping of the system, the level of vibration will increase, resulting in self

exciting oscillation. The vibration levels can
thus build up and are only limited when the aerodynamic or mechanical damping of the object match the energy input,
this often results in large amplitudes and can lead to rapid failure. Because of this, structures exposed to aerodynamic
forces

including wings, aerofoils, but also chimneys and bridges

are designed carefully within known parameters to
avoid flutter. It is however not always a destructive force; recent progress has been made in small scale (table top) wind
generators for underserved communities in developing countries, designed specifically to take advantage of this effect.
In complex structures where both the aerodynamics and the mechanical properties of the structure are not fully
understood flutter can only be discounted through detailed testing. Even changing the mass distribution of an aircraft or
the stiffness of one component can induce flutter in an apparently unrelated aerodynamic component. At its mildest this
can appear as a "buzz" in the aircraft structure, but at its most violent it can develop uncontrollably with great speed and
cause serious damage to or the destruction of the aircraft.
In some cases, automatic control systems have been demonstrated to help prevent or limit flutter related structural
vibration.
Flutter can also occur on structures other than aircraft. One famous example of flutter phenomena is the collapse of the
original Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
