The unit provides the knowledge and skills required to design systems with appropriate vibration properties. Topics covered include: introduction to vibration; response to harmonic excitation; general forced response; multiple degree of freedom systems; design for vibration suppression; distributed parameter systems; vibration testing and experimental modal analysis; finite element methods; the use of vibration engineering in condition monitoring.
This unit is reliant on on-line materials. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection and a scanner.
Students studying in external mode must attend residential activity at the Casuarina Campus during the mid-semester break. More information about residentials can be found at http://www.cdu.edu.au/engit/residentials.html
