Students will be provided with knowledge of the mechanical vibration phenomenology. They will improve skills in the analysis and characterisation of oscillating motion in mechanical systems.
1 - Basics of mechanical vibration:
Mechanical vibration, the phenomenology of mechanical vibration, vibration system, classification of vibration systems, vibration analysis procedures, harmonic motion.
2 - Single-degree-of-freedom systems:
Differential equation of motion, free vibration, natural frequency, damping ratio, logarithmic decrement ...
Assessment comprises: continuous (during class periods).
Summative assessment includes final exams: Regular exam, re-sit and special exam.
