Summary

 

Applied Vibration Engineering (PG) - MECH97006

Aims

To teach students how to use the theoretical principles of vibration, and vibration analysis techniques, for the practical solution of vibration problems. The course thus builds on students prior knowledge of vibration theory, and concentrates on the applications. A key feature is that students work on identifying and defining the problems to be solved, prior to solving them. This includes choices of assumptions, choices of measurements to be made and information to be investigated, and choices of analysis techniques to be employed. In keeping with the applied focus, the course includes practical analysis and measurement activities and a project in which students play the roles of clients and consultants while solving a real vibration problem.

ECTS units:  7

Machine Dynamics and Vibrations A - MECH60001

Aims

The course aims to enable students to evaluate the dynamic response requirements of a proposed machine design and to produce workable proposals for its safe and effective operation. It will build on the second year Mechatronics and Solid Mechanics courses, introducing a greater range of examples where the dynamic response of a machine must be controlled and making the link between vibration and fatigue failure. This will involve some new subject matter in the vibration of continuous systems, rotor dynamics, signal processing and control analysis. A key aspect of the course is to demonstrate practical vibration measurements and to compare them to solutions of an idealised system in MATLAB. They will also deal with realistic problems involving the assessment of the fatigue life of structures subject to vibration and static loading.
