MECH 420 Vibrations W | 3.5

Lecture: 3
Lab: 0
Tutorial: 0.5
Considers mechanical vibration, the problems it presents and the means of dealing with it. Completes the treatment of systems with two degrees-of-freedom (introduced in MECH 328 ) and proceeds to systems with higher number of degrees-of-freedom. Co-ordinate systems, types of coupling, matrix formulation, vibration absorbers and dampers, specific and hysteretic damping, Rayleigh’s method, torsional vibration, Holzer method, introduction to the finite element method, beam vibration.
