Student learning outcomes

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), complex vector, etc., and solve actual vibration problems.
2) Understand coupled natural frequencies and natural modes of two degrees of freedom systems, and explain the concept of modal analysis.
3) Understand principles of dynamic absorber, and derive their optimum parameters with the fixed points theory.
4) Understand natural frequencies and eigenmodes of continuum system.

Keywords

Free vibration and forced vibration for single degree of freedom systems,Response characteristics of single degree of freedom systems subjected to harmonic excitation,Coupled natural frequencies and natural modes of two degree of freedom systems,Dynamic absorber, distributed parameter system

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

At the beginning of each class, solutions to exercise problems that were assigned in the previous class are reviewed. Towards the end of class, students are given exercise problems related to the lecture given that day to solve. To prepare for the class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
