MC486 (Version: 2024 1) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
MC486 VIBRATION ENGINEERING 2024 1 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
In this course students develop a foundation in the analysis and design of free and forced single and multi-degree of freedom systems. Applications include modeling, damping, resonance, force transmissibility, vibration absorbers, matrix formulation and modal analysis. Emphasis is placed on vibrations examples from several engineering fields. Laboratory experiences provide students with the opportunity to apply principles taught in the classroom to physical systems, allowing the comparison of theoretical and actual vibrating systems. In-class demonstrations supplement the theory development.
LESSONS: 36 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 4 @ 120 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
None

MC486 VIBRATION ENGINEERING 2013 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
In this course students develop a foundation in the analysis and design of free and forced single and multi-degree of freedom systems. Applications include modeling, damping, resonance, force transmissibility, vibration absorbers, matrix formulation and modal analysis. Emphasis is placed on vibrations examples from several engineering fields. Out-of-class design problems provide students with the opportunity to apply principles taught in the classroom to realistic problems encountered by practicing engineers. In-class demonstrations supplement the theory development.
LESSONS: 39 @ 55 min (2.500 Att/wk) LABS: 1 @ 55 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Two out-of-class design problems. Compensatory time given.
