This course is an introduction to engineering vibration of lumped-parameter models of mechanical systems. Topics covered include the response to the harmonic excitation, free and forced vibration of linear multi-degree of freedom models of mechanical systems and matrix eigenvalue problems. It also includes design methods for vibration suppression, vibration testing and experimental modal analysis. Application to the design of mechanical structures such as robotic arms, vehicle suspension and diverse vibrational engineering systems.
In particular, this course contains to conduct the team-based project. Each team should select problems from the real world. Based on the theory learned in the class, each team will have an opportunity to solve the real problems – simplify problems, derive equations, obtain solutions and make several presentations.
