And when the forcing causing the vibration is complex and continuous, rather than percussive? And what happens when the system is being forced at both the block end and the neck end, by a coupled source? Looking at a heavily idealised representation of a joint can often be useful for taks such as understanding structural performance (so perhaps choosing numbers of nails / size / nature of the joint), but the problem you are trying to "solve" is infinitely more nuanced and complex, and your analysis sheds little light on it in my opinion. Good luck, Good questions! You are right! I dont know how the patterns of nodal lines will change but I think to fix theese parts in the best position related to the geometrical form of the single pieces ,maybe would be good to do it in a way similar to that. I don't think there is some difference if it is continuos or percussive the vibration. I just mind to fix 2 pieces together in the place where they are more "stable" and at the same time letting the other parts vibrating Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
