Course Objectives 1) To teach the students the fundamentals of vibrations theory for structural systems.
2) To help students to be aware of dynamic behavior of structures under dynamic loads.
3) To give information about structural damages under dynamic loads and experimental
techniques to verify the damage position in structure and its severity.
Course Description Fundamentals of vibrations. Classification of vibrations and analysis procedures. Free and forced vibration of single and multi degree of freedom systems. Fourier series expansion, fast Fourier transform. Determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes, vibration measurements and applications. Instrumentation, data acquisition systems.
