MECH.5500 Vibrations (Formerly 22.550)

Id: 003895 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3

Description

This course provides the analytical background for the fundamental understanding of vibration analysis, modeling and testing of mechanical systems. The course starts with an overview of the concepts in vibrations and later builds an in-depth understanding of the vibrations of single degree of freedom and multi degree of freedom systems. Both free and forced vibrations of these systems under steady-state and transient mechanical excitations will be investigated. The important concepts of modal analysis and vibration measurement methods will be studied. The continuous system modeling, nonlinear and random vibrations will also be touched upon.

Prerequisites

Pre-Req: MATH 2360 Eng. Differential Equations and MECH 4510 Dynamic Systems Analysis.
