The prediction and analysis of dynamic behaviour and vibrations of lift systems

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsInvited talkResearch


The operation of a lift system is affected by dynamic phenomena and vibrations. This affects ride quality and results in a high level of dynamic stresses in the lift installation components. This paper demonstrates a general approach to model the dynamic behaviour of typical lift installations. Subsequently, vibration modelling and simulation techniques for the prediction of their dynamic responses is discussed and the effectiveness of these techniques is demonstrated using the car – sling assembly as an example. Then, suitable strategies are described to minimize the effects of adverse dynamic responses of the system so that the installation can operate under these conditions safely.
