The unit provides the knowledge and skills required to design and monitor systems with appropriate vibration properties. Students will have the opportunity to investigate the application of theoretical knowledge on dynamics and process control to a variety of situations related to the response to harmonic excitation, general forced response, multiple degree of freedom systems, design for vibration suppression, distributed parameter systems, acoustics and noise barriers. The unit also includes practical components related to vibration testing of mechanical systems, experimental modal analysis and application of finite element methods.
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
