43-3340 Fundamentals of Vibration Analysis


Course provides students with an understanding of vibration theory, experimental analysis and vibration control. The class focuses on free and forced vibration of mechanical systems with an emphasis on practical applications in the areas of rotating machinery, isolation, and noise reduction. Excessive vibration is often the cause of unwanted sound or noise. Understanding the effects of vibration enhances the understanding of noise related issues in buildings and the environment, addressed in Engineered Acoustics and Environmental Acoustics. This class also provides the necessary background to understand the complex vibration of musical instruments.
