Fundamentals of vibration analysis of 1, 2 and multi DOF mechanical systems including the effects of damping; free response, forced response to transient and steady state harmonic and periodic excitations; the significance of natural modes, resonance frequency, mode shape, and orthogonality; vibration control, vibration isolators and absorbers; introduction to vibration measurement. Computer problems include the design of vibration control devices. A measurement project involves the use of an accelerometer, signal conditioning and analysis instrumentation.
