MAE 5730

MAE 5730

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

The course emphasizes the dynamics and vibrations of multi-degree-of-freedom systems including particles, rigid-objects and structures in 2 dimensions using three approaches: Newton-Euler, Lagrangian approach, both using minimal co- ordinates, and also a 'maximal coordinate' approach using differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The course emphasizes finding equations of motion, solving them analytically (if possible) and numerically; and graphical presentation of solutions. Vibrations topics include modal analysis of discrete systems, including analysis of damped systems using the matrix exponential. Special topics, such as vibration absorbers and vibration control, are introduced.
