An extension of the dynamic synthesis philosophy given earlier [1] for cam follower systems is made in terms of a two-degree-of-freedom model. Three additional dimensionless parameters η, λ, γ for the distribution of mass, spring, and dashpot content are sufficient to describe this more complex system relative to the single degree-of-freedom coefficients. Charts in terms of η, λ, γ are presented to assist in choosing the best set of these values. Finally, “rules of thumb” are given which are applicable to a wide range of mechanical systems.
