Principles of Vibration Control

ABOUT THE COURSE:

Vibration is undesirable in most engineering systems. The adverse effects of vibration include fatigue failure, severe damages due to resonance, malfunctioning of sensitive instruments/systems, loss of accuracy of a work-piece due to vibration of machine tools, etc. Hence, this course will give a brief overview of the various strategies to control such vibrations in systems and principle behind them. 

INTENDED AUDIENCE:  B.Tech/M.Tech/PhD

CORE/ELECTIVE: Core PG course in Mechanical Engineering SMD stream, also it is generally taken by advanced UG students (3rd or 4th year) as elective course

UG/PG: Both UG/PG
