Course Content (Syllabus)
Free vibration and forced response of single degree of freedom linear oscillators to impulsive, harmonic, periodic and transient excitation (natural frequency, damping ratio, resonance). Response of multiple degree of freedom linear oscillators (formulation of the equations of motion, determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes, modal analysis). Axial, torsional and bending vibration of bars. Applications (measurement and evaluation of vibration characteristics, vibration isolation, vibration absorption, balancing, torsional vibration).
