ME 401 - Vibration Control

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This is an introduction to mechanical vibrations, to free and forced vibrations of single-degree of freedom systems, and to two-degree of freedom of systems. Various types of forcing functions are considered for both damped and undamped systems. (prereq: MA 232 , ME 230 )
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
• model simple vibratory systems and determine equations of motion
• solve equations of motion for single degree of freedom systems subject to harmonic, general periodic and arbitrary forcing functions
• write equations of motion for idealized multi-degree of freedom systems
• determine natural frequencies and mode shapes for systems with two and three degrees of freedom
• develop appropriate analytical models for simulation using MATLAB w/ Simulink
• perform measurements and conduct modal tests on simple systems
