Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering, Alexandria University
Vibrations in machines and structures are typically undesirable as they produce stresses, energy losses and increased bearing loads. They contribute to structural wear and can lead to passenger discomfort in vehicles.
This course covers the vibrations of discrete systems and continuous structures and introduces the computational dynamics of linear engineering systems. Learn how to derive equations of motion and design vibration isolation systems. Gain an understanding of the concepts of natural frequencies and mode shapes and their significance. Complete system modeling tasks and formulate equations to measure and ultimately minimize vibrations.
