Structural-Vibration Analysis: Design and Troubleshooting
This is an intermediate-level course. Learn how to compute the natural frequencies, mode shapes, and forced-vibration response of structures and structural components. Benchmarking analytical results with test results or field data is also taught. A variety of methods for reducing excessive vibrations in new as well as existing structures are discussed (frequency separation techniques, variety of dampers, vibration absorbers [tuned-mass dampers], vibration isolators). Rotating equipment and foundations, earthquake analysis, blast loads, vibration isolation, structure-fluid systems, and flow-induced vibrations are also discussed (2.1 CEUs).
