2.04B Introduction to Mechanical Vibration
Analyzes the time domain response of single- and multiple-degree-of-freedom (DOF) systems to initial conditions and force inputs. Uses matrix formulation of multiple-DOF problems, including finding natural frequencies and mode shapes. Provides an introduction to the method of normal mode superposition. Includes transfer function analysis of the response of linear systems to steady state harmonic inputs, with application to vibration isolation and dynamic absorbers. Also includes application to the analysis of machines with rotating imbalances. Enrollment may be limited due to lab capacity; preference to Course 2 majors and minors.
2.04B will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by J. K. Vandiver.
This class counts for a total of 6 credits.
