Intended learning outcomes

Advanced mechanical vibrations are studied primarily with emphasis on application of analytical and computational methods to machine design and vibration control problems.  Equations of motion are developed using Lagrange's equations.  A single degree-of-freedom system is used to determine free vibration characteristics and response to impulse, harmonic periodic excitations, and random.  The study of two and three degree-of-freedom systems includes the determination of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and an in-depth study of modal analysis methods.  The finite element method is used to conduct basic vibration analysis of systems with a large number of degrees of freedom.

The student learns how to balance rotating machines, and how to design suspension systems, isolation systems, vibration sensors, and tuned vibration absorbers.

Course main content

• Determine the free vibration characteristics and response to impulse, harmonic and periodic excitations, of a single degree-of-freedom system

• Demonstrate the effects of viscous and structural damping

•  Determine the eigenvalues and eigenvectors and conduct modal response analysis of a 2 degree-of-freedom system

•  Determine the eigenvalues and eigenvectors and conduct modal response analysis of a multi degree-of-freedom system

•  Utilization of a finite element method (e.g. ANSYS) to conduct a basic vibration analysis
