Description

This subject extends students' understanding of vibration theory and its application to problems encountered in mechanical and structural engineering. It focuses on learning and practising the techniques and skills most frequently used in engineering practice. After a brief revision of basic vibration theory for single-degree-of-freedom systems, the subject moves on to multiple-degree-of-freedom systems, modal analysis, torsional vibration, approximation and numerical methods for transverse vibration including influence coefficient methods, transfer matrix method and finite element methods. Applications include vibration reduction by passive and active means, design of vehicle suspension systems, experimental modal analysis, rotor dynamics and spin stability and analysis.
