EGM441 Mechanical Vibrations

The objective of this course is for students to learn analytical, experimental, and numerical treatment of vibration phenomena. Topics include linear oscillator analysis (Laplace transforms, complex harmonic balance, Fourier transforms, eigenvalue problems, modal analysis, and simulation), experimental methods, and an introduction to nonlinear dynamic systems. Free and forced vibrations of mechanical systems with lumped inertia, springs, and dampers are the primary emphasis.
