Why you should do this course
Anything that is moving is going to vibrate. Even a "static" building or bridge will vibrate at it's resonance frequency. If a force is applied to a structure, such as an operating machine, an engine mounted to a wing, a machinery platform on a submarine, the structure will vibrate. As a mechanical engineer, it is important that you understand these concepts and can calculate the expected amplitude of vibration, and how to avoid potential problems, such as having a motor operating at a speed that coincides with a resonance frequency of a structure.
As a mechanical engineer, we'd expect you to have basic knowledge in some core areas relevant to your discipline, and these include:
- Automatic control systems
If you are interested in obtaining a greater understanding about these topics, there are further courses available in
The course involves many laboratory practicals that are held in the CARM lab, S311 in Engineering South.
