SD2150 Experimental Structure Dynamics, Project Course 9.0 credits
Industrial designers and engineers often need to analyse how machines, vehicles etc respond to dynamic excitation forces. The purpose may be to improve an existing design or to get valuable knowledge to develop a new design. Analysis of this kind has been made possible by the rapidly developing digital computing and measurement techniques. In the latter half of the 20th century methods like the Finite Element Analysis and the Experimental Modal Analysis were developed and became popular engineering analysis tools. Experience has shown, however, that reliable results from these methods require the user to be able to use the methods critically and to carefully consider the limiting assumptions.
The main purposes of this course are to provide you with theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience such that you are well prepared for future work with experimental structure dynamics.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LABA - Computer and Laboratory Excercises, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LABB - Project, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TENB - Oral and written exam, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
