TEXTBOOK:

COURSE DESCRIPTION
Dynamics and Vibration (CE 2460) is the first course in dynamics. This course presents a
treatment of kinematics and kinetics of particles and rigid bodies; development of resulting
impulse-momentum and work-energy principles; application towards vibration of structural and
machine components.
BASIC COURSE OBJECTIVES
The main objective of the course is for students to scientifically analyze and describe motion of
structural components and systems, study the effect of force systems that produce the motion and
establish basic principles used to analyze vibration of structural components. Physical and
mathematical tools, based on logical thinking process, that use a mechanical point of view will
be developed to efficiently achieve these objectives.
STUDENT OUTCOME OBJECTIVES
1. Understanding kinematics of particles and rigid bodies such as the relationship among
position, velocity, and acceleration.
2. Understanding the kinetics of particles and rigid bodies and use of force equilibrium and
moment equilibrium to solve problems of motion (Newtons second law).
3. Use energy and momentum methods to solve problems of motion.
4. Be able to understand the fundamentals of mechanical vibration.
ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT OUTCOMES
1. Homework will be assigned each class period from the textbook. Homework is due at the
beginning of the next class day. No homework is accepted 10 minutes after lecture begins.
Students coming in late, but within the first 10 minutes, should turn in their homework before
they are seated. All homework must be submitted on engineering paper and neatly in order to
obtain fullest credit. The problems assigned to turn in will be graded on the basis of completion
on a 10 point scale. Students are encouraged to work together but copying is not allowed,
neither from each other nor from any solution manual or previously released solution from
another semester. Solutions to assignments will be available in Moodle shortly after homeworks
are submitted. No makeup homeworks, but missed homework may be ignored with a valid
excuse made within one day of missed homework.

Page 2 of 8
2. Quizzes will be approximately 15-25 minutes duration and cover material from the previous
week and will be given on designated days in class as stated in the course outline. No makeup
quizzes, but missed quizzes may be ignored with a valid excuse made within one day of missed
quiz.
3. Exams will be used to determine the students ability to apply several concepts to a single
problem in order to obtain the desired solution. There will be three exams throughout the
semester each on one hour duration and will be given in the class on designated days as stated in
the course outline. Missed exams cannot be ignored, and students are expected to promptly
schedule makeup exams. No makeup exams will be given without a minimum of 24 hours
advance notice and adequate proof of an emergency situation. If advance notice is not possible
in the emergency situation, the instructor must be notified no later than 1 day after the scheduled
day of the exam in order to be eligible for a makeup exam. For example, in case of a medical
emergency, the written excuse should include a doctors note (with doctors name and phone
number) which can be used to ascertain the excuse.
NOTE:
1) Grades for HW/quizzes/exams will be posted on Moodle when they are returned.
You are expected to make any changes to your grade within 4 days after they are
returned. It is your responsibility to check the graded material for correctness
(both in procedure and final answer) regardless of the grade you get.
2) Any student who has been tested eligible for extra time on exams/quizzes by the Office
of Disability Services (ODS) must take their exams at ODS and comply with their
rules and time schedules. (See instructor and www.lsu.edu/disability for details)
4. A comprehensive final exam of two hours duration will test the ability of the student to
synthesize related concepts from course topics and to demonstrate their assimilation of the
course material. The final exam will be on Monday, May 4th, 10am-12pm.
NOTE:
1. If you have more than two final exams over the 24 hour period which includes this exam
or another exam scheduled for the exact same time frame, make sure you fill out a form
from the College of Engineering office and give to your instructor, by the first week of
April, with the rest of your exam schedule so that an appropriate makeup exam date can
be established.
5. BONUS: Bonus, in the form of extra credit homework or extra credit problems in exams will
be assigned periodically. The bonus points will be added into the final total grade, not to exceed
2%.
GRADING POLICY
The grade distribution adopted in this course is the following:
Three-one-hour exams (3 x 75)
225 pts. (45%)
Two-hour final exam
150
(30%)
Quizzes
75
(15%)
Homework
50
(10%)
---------------------------------------------------------------------Total
500 pts. (100%)

Page 3 of 8
The final grade will be based on the following point scale:
A
450 500 pts.
( 90% )
B
400 449
(80% & < 90% )
C
350 399
( 70% & < 80% )
D
300 349
( 60% & < 70% )
F
< 300
( < 60% )
Any grade change you see justified should be brought to the attention of the instructor within
four days of the grade being posted on Moodle. This includes exams, quizzes, and homework.
OTHER REQUIREMENTS
1. Blue books: Students must submit four full-sized blue books (8 x 11 and minimum of 8
leaves 16 pages) to the instructor the first week of class. No student will be allowed to bring
their own blue book for the exams. The students name must be on the back upper left corner
to be properly credited.
2. Attendance: Attendance is mandatory. Successful students use the class period as the
primary method of instruction in meeting student objectives. Material development in this class
tends to be cumulative, missing classes will therefore adversely effects long term understanding
of the course material.
IMPORTANT NOTES
1. Exams Time: Methods presented in the lecture usually consist of an efficient way of solving
a problem. Such methods have general applicability for a wide range of problems, and provide
students with a logical stepwise process to approach a problem in an exam setting. Many
students may have learned a certain shortcut method, from other courses/sources, which work for
only a smaller range of problems and are reluctant to let go of the old method and learn a new
method. Due to the time factor on the exams, the problems are designed to test the students
ability to present the mathematical process used for the solution (for partial credit) rather than
always be able to obtain the complete solution
2. Grading Policy: No curves; you must know the material in order to pass the course.
Moreover, seniors expected to graduate will be graded the same as everyone else.
3. Regrade Policy: All questions regarding the grading of any homework/quiz/exam will only be
accepted within four days of the grade being posted on Moodle. Based on student concern, the
assignment will be regraded and returned to you. If you continue to have concerns, arrange for an
appointment with your instructor to discuss the issue. Any excuses for HWs/quizzes should be
provided to the instructor, in written form, within 1 day of missed HW/quiz. For example, in case
of a medical emergency, the written excuse should include a doctors note (with doctors name
and phone number) which can be used to ascertain the excuse. All excused HWs/quizzes will
be ignored, i.e. not be included in the final grade calculation. However, note that exams cannot
be ignored and a makeup exam needs to be scheduled.
4. Moodle: Class notes, solution sets for HWs/Quizzes/Exams and grades obtained thereof will
be periodically posted through Moodle. Note that class notes posted on Moodle will be

Page 4 of 8
incomplete (i.e. instructor will complete the notes in class) and students are expected to bring a
copy of the class notes. Students are expected to verify their grades by instructor specified dates.
No correction of grades, past the instructor specified dates, will be permitted. Students can
access the Moodle website through (a) moodle2.lsu.edu and entering their PAWS
userid&password in the website or (b) via My LSU pages in PAWS.
5. Classroom Courtesy: It is expected that each student will treat all members of the class with
courtesy and respect. Any disrespect on the basis of race, religion, gender, or special needs will
not be tolerated. All students are expected to adhere to the LSU Code of Student Conduct (at
www.lsu.edu/judicialaffairs). Disruptive behavior in the classroom is not tolerated and includes,
but is not limited to: talking while instructor is talking, studying for another exam or doing
homework for another class with a partner, passing food, drink, or notes around to others,
sleeping or reading the newspaper during the lecture, listening to CDs or anything with
headsets, taking phone calls, arriving to or leaving class during the lecture, packing book bags
while lecture is still in progress. If you know you must leave early, inform the instructor in
advance and sit as close to the exit door as possible.
6. Academic Integrity: The Code of Student Conduct includes LSUs standards of academic
integrity. It is expected that each student will embrace the standards of the University and not
tolerate liars, cheaters, thieves. Confront them. Dont ignore them, and if necessary report them.
The Code requires instructors to report ALL academic misconduct violations to the Office of
Judicial Affairs (OJA). Some specific examples of academic misconduct are, but not limited to:
copying, using unauthorized materials during a quiz or exam, failing to follow instructors
instructions, submitting work of another or providing work to another student for copying,
misrepresenting identity, and attempting to commit an act of academic misconduct. Anyone who
engages in academic dishonesty can expect to receive a permanent grade of F for the course
and other sanctions as determined by OJA. Please see LSU College of Engineering Policy
Statement regarding Academic Integrity in page 7 and Pledge of Professional Conduct
(POPC) in the last page of this syllabus.
7. In order for the student to grasp the material in this course, it is expected that the student
would:
a. Follow the instructions given in class in how to approach a problem;
b. Go through all the example problems in the text on the particular topic;
c. Attempt homework problems based on instructions given in class. Students who do well in
in this class follow (a-c) judiciously---trying to read the material just before quiz/exam
does not work.
d. Take advantage of the instructor office hours during the week, or if unable to, set up an
appointment times with the instructor.
8. The following must be adhered to when submitting assignments:
a. All pages (engineering paper) must be in order and stapled together;
b. Fold papers together on vertical crease and clearly print on the outside your name (last,
first, middle initial), course and section numbers, teachers name, and the assignment
number;
c. Write at the top of each page:
Course and section number, assignment number, your name (last, first, middle initial),
number of the page / total no of pages in the assignment.
d. Number each problem clearly.

Best of luck to all of you

LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING
POLICY STATEMENT
Academic Honesty in All Credit Assignments*
As a student of Louisiana State University, you have been required to read and abide by the Code of Student Conduct. As a part of the
College of Engineering, you have engaged in a discipline (obtaining a body of knowledge) that will eventually lead to induction into a
prestigious profession. Regardless of what your future profession may be, it is expected that you adopt professional standards during your
tenure at LSU which you will retain for the rest of your professional life. This policy statement is to reinforce from the LSU Code of Student
Conduct that the College of Engineering, and in particular this course, CE2460Dynamics and Vibration, takes academic honesty very
seriously.
Historically, all work represented as original work has been protected by a code of professional behavior (ethics) which holds that one
may neither borrow from the work of others without permission, nor even refer to their work without a full and complete reference to them
as the authors. To do so is essentially an act of intellectual theft. Plagiarism is a violation of this ancient concept. A degree awarded by LSU
is a statement to others that an individual has achieved a level of professionalism and has demonstrated a belief in the ethical standards
demanded of all professions.
Another tenet of the code of ethics is that professionals assume full responsibility for the integrity and authenticity of their work. It is
therefore incumbent upon each individual to be cautious to insure the security, authenticity, and accuracy of their professional work.
Unless otherwise specifically stated, written assignments submitted for credit are expected to be solely the work of the individual student
submitting the assignment and are thereby covered by this code of ethics.
If, in the view of the instructor, problem solutions were not developed independently, the students involved will be charged with violation
of the Code of Student Conduct. Copies of this document are available from the office of the Dean of Students or www.lsu.edu/judicialaffairs.
Your instructor does not object to general discussion of concepts and methodologies, but the sharing of programs, sections of programs,
written derivations or description of algorithms or documentation without prior written approval from the proper authority is considered
unacceptable collaboration and is strictly prohibited. Any tutorial homework help given in which the written solution is just handed to you
for copying is a violation of this code as well a violation of the tutors duties and should be reported at once to your instructor and/or the
College of Engineering (Asst. Dean Launey, or Assoc. Dean Waggenspack). Copying solutions from any solution manual or from the internet
is forbidden. If in doubt, ask your instructor.
Assignments do not have to be identical line for line or word for word to be considered evidence of unacceptable collaboration between
students. Merely changing variable names, labels, comments or spacing should not be expected to disguise, from either the instructor or
members of a Student Conduct Hearing Panel, the fact that unacceptable collaboration has occurred. It is also the responsibility of each
student, insofar as the student has control, to ensure that his or her work does not fall into the hands of other students (e.g. assigned
homeworks that are completed early should not be left in places that are easily accessible to other students). Students are encouraged to
keep dated copies of partially-worked problems in order to be able to document their progress on the assignments (particularly any project
or long-term assignment).
In addition to the above, any alteration of output, in any manner (such as changing the date, changing the answer to match the answer in
the back of the book, etc.) is also considered to be a misrepresentation of ones professional work and is thereby academic dishonesty.
The preceding statements pertain only to assignments which are to be submitted for credit and are not intended to discourage students
from studying or working extra problems together to increase their understanding of the material.
