ENME 599 Vibrations & Machine Dynamics
This course will discuss linear vibration theory: free and forced vibration of single- and
multi-degree-of-freedom (DOF) systems; damping in machines; vibration isolators &
absorbers; experimental modal analysis. Balance of rotating machinery: sources of
unbalance, rigid rotors, flexible rotors, critical speeds, balancing principles. Lagrange
equations: application to mechanical systems.
