ME 431 Mechanical Vibrations

Fundamentals of free and forced vibrations in linear systems. Time and frequency response analysis of one- and two-degree-of-freedom systems with viscous damping. Applications to mechanical systems involving vibration isolation, rotating imbalance, dry friction damping, structural damping, beat phenomena and vibration absorption. Redesign for vibration mitigation. Free vibration eigenvalue problem, modes of vibration and modal analysis of multi-degree-offreedom systems. Use of software such as MATLAB for natural frequencies and mode shapes analysis and vibration response simulation.
