Single and multi-degree-of-freedom
systems as well as continuous systems are analyzed for their vibrational response
characteristics using both exact and approximate methods.
The study of vibrations has a number of important applications in a variety
of engineering disciplines. These applications include, but are not limited
to: vibrations in typical mechanical systems such as automobiles, planes, or
space vehicles; vibrations due to earthquakes on buildings and other structures;
or vibrations and rotating imbalances in machinery and plant applications. The
prerequisites for this course are an undergraduate course in Dynamics and an
undergrad course in Differential Equations.
can not take ME4189-Vibrations for credit this summer 07 if theyve already
taken (or plan to take) ME6442-Vibrations. ME4189
is a senior undergraduate vibrations course and covers less material than ME
6442, the graduate vibrations course.
Dr. Whiteman will adhere to the standard 1 week delay for receipt of assignments, projects and exams this semester.
