Homework 4

(Due at the beginning of Lab 9)

Introduction & MotivationSphere floating in water:

A spherical floater is placed in water. Without external forcing, it would be partially submerged with depth h, as

shown in the following diagram. The free surface of the water is indicated by the triangle in the figure. When the

sphere is half-submerged, h = R. When the sphere is totally submerged, h = 2R.

h

If we neglect the effect of surface tension, the general equation of motion for the floater is given by

d2 h

m =

m g w Vsub g

d t2

(1)

buoyancy force

where Vsub is the volume of the floater submerged in water which depends on the depth h in the following way:

1 2

h (3 R h)

3

Vsub (h) =

4 R 3 1 ( 2 R h )2 ( R + h )

0h<R

R h < 2R

Task:

Apply the state-vector approach to time-advance the oscillatory motion associated with a floater of radius R = 0.1 m

and mass m = 1 kg for 3 seconds, with an initial conditions of

h (=

t 0=

) R

and

dh

=0

d t t =0

Numerical Methods

Write a well-documented, modular MATLAB code to time-advance Equation (1) with its initial conditions (2).

Your top-level code hw4_INI.m should initiate the following tasks in an efficient way:

o

Time-advance the equation of motion using the state-vector approach using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta

method as we practiced in Lab 7.

Use the subplot command to display the time history of the submerged depth (top figure) and the vertical

velocity (bottom figure);

Vy =

dh

dt

On the command window, report the maximum and minimum values, with 8 decimal places, of both the

submerged depth h and the vertical velocity Vy of the floater.

Result Validation

Demonstrate that youve both thought about the result your code returns and checked that its reasonable by

attaching a result validation page (you may use engineering paper.) Use drawings, equations, and sentences to

explain your validation.

Demonstrate how you used the equations on the first page to determine the system state vector and the

system state derivative.

Demonstrate that changes to the parameters produce the expected results.

2. Store a soft copy of your code in your personal folder under a new subfolder HW 4 at

\\rose-hulman.edu\dfs\AcademicAffairs\ME\ME323\my_section\my_username\

3.

Submit a hard copy printout of all your code with a cover sheet. Include your result validation.
