【Course description】
The course teaches the vibration characteristics of single degree freedom systems(natural frequency, frequency response, resonance, etc.) and the vibration analysis methods of two degrees of freedom systems which are the fundamentals of mechanical vibrations.
【Aims】
Students learn the fundamental vibration analysis methods for single degree of freedom systems and two degrees of freedom systems and can classify various machhine vibrations which are important in engneering and sensitivity. They will be able to solve unknown vibration problems.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand natural frequency of single degree of freedom systems, frequency response, resonance, transmissibility(vibration isolation), comlex vector, etc., and solve actual vibration problems．
2) Understand coupled natural frequencies and natural modes of two degrees of freedom systems, and explain the consept of modal analysis.
3) Understand principles of dynamic absorber, and derive their optimum parameters with the fixed points theory.
