Requisite(s): 41058 Dynamic Systems and Control A OR 48660 Dynamics and Control
Undergraduate and Postgraduate
Vibration and acoustics play a significant role in the behaviour, performance, design, life expectancy, and even failure, of mechanical and structural systems. Mechanical (and mechatronic) engineers design machines, with complex dynamic behaviour, which must be controlled for the reasons given and for meeting the appropriate design standards. This subject introduces concepts and approaches to noise and vibration modelling, analysis, and measurement, including advanced approaches in rigid and flexible body modelling and analysis of mechanical systems as well as experimental techniques for the analysis and evaluation of existing systems. This subject additionally introduces new concepts and approaches to control system design with modern control theories. Laboratory and project work form a significant proportion of in-class activities, in which students become proficient in the techniques of data acquisition, noise and vibration testing, measurement, signal processing and vibration and control engineering.
