MECH ENG 7030 - Advanced Vibrations

Career: Postgraduate Coursework
Units: 3
Term: Semester 2
Campus: North Terrace
Contact: Up to 4 hours per week
Available for Study Abroad and Exchange: Yes
Available for Non-Award Study: Yes
Assumed Knowledge: MECH ENG 3028, in particular an understanding of the principles of vibrations, including the influence of mass, stiffness and damping; an understanding of the concepts of vibration modes and natural frequencies; and familiarity with Matlab.

Syllabus:

Students will be introduced to the vibrations of complex systems including multi-degree-of-freedom and continuous systems. System modelling via the use of energy analysis and its application to complex vibrating systems will be discussed. The fundamentals of vibrations of continuous systems such as strings, beams and plates will be explained. Nonlinearities in vibration behaviour of mechanical systems will be analysed and the fundamentals of flow-induced vibrations and dynamics of Micro- Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) will be explained.
