Module overview

Vibration is an important consideration for many engineered structures and is caused by dynamic loads arising during operation, e.g. in all transportation vehicles, motors/generators and buildings. It is also an invaluable diagnostic tool for monitoring the long-term health of structures. This module aims to provide an in-depth understanding of established methods for modelling vibration. These range from analytical methods for simple components such as beams and plates through to numerical methods for built-up structures. Experimental techniques are also covered and the most commonly used method for vibration testing is studied in detail through a practical laboratory.
