The effect of linear acceleration on the stability of a dynamically tuned precession gyroscope
Abstract
The effect of onecomponent radially aligned linear acceleration of the base on the stability of a dynamically tuned Howe gyroscope was analyzed on the basis of vector matrix representation of the differential equations of a gyroscope. The gyroscope equations, after a number of transformations, are represented in the form of a matrix power series by powers of small parameter. The representative matrices of the first and second approximations by which the stability of the gyroscope is analyzed are determined on the basis of methods used to investigate matrix equations with small parameter.
