- How transient vibrations arise
- Why rope vibrations often occur at particular positions in the hoistway
- Why, when considering transient rope vibration, even a high-speed elevator may be treated as if it were stationary
- Why lateral ropevibrations may give rise to longitudinalvibration and vice versa
- Why transient rope vibration may be very difficult to eliminate
- Watch the presentation and study the reinforcement questions

Dr. Stefan Kaczmarczyk is currently Professor of Applied Mechanics at the University of Northampton. He has been serving on the Institute of Physics Applied Mechanics Group Committee and initiated and developed a series of international conferences linking the U.K. and overseas- based academic and industrial research groups working in the area of mechanics of slender structures, with particular emphasis on applications in elevator engineering. Dr. Kaczmarczyk joined the elevator engineering group at the University of Northampton as a senior lecturer in 2002. In 2003, he became the course leader for MSc Lift Engineering, then postgraduate field leader for Lift Engineering. Dr. Kaczmarczyk has published over 70 journal and international conference papers in the area of vertical transportation and elevator engineering.
