This course introduces the theory of dynamics and the vibration of single and multi-degree of freedom systems, and dynamics of rotating and reciprocating machinery.
|Second Sub Session
|15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)
This course commences with an overview of the dynamics of a particle and of general planar kinematics and dynamics before proceeding to a review of the free and forced vibration response of a linear single degree of freedom system. An introduction to the vibration of systems with two or more degrees of freedom follows, including natural frequencies and mode shapes, principal co-ordinates and calculation of the forced response using the impedance method. Then the dynamic forces and moments associated with rotating and reciprocating machinery are examined. The design of a passive vibration absorber and testing in the laboratory are included the course. Matlab is used for calculations of dynamic responses and natural frequencies and mode shapes.
