Dynamics and kinematics of mechanical and mechatronic systems; derivations and analysis of equation(s) of motion of single and multi-degree of freedom systems; vibrations: free and forced vibrations (harmonic, periodic, quasi- and aperiodic); computational methods to solve differential equations (Euler, Newmark-Beta, Runge-Kutta).
This course includes: dynamics and kinematics of machine elements; derivations and fundamental analysis of equations of motion of single/multiple degree-of-freedom (DOF) systems; vibration analysis: free and forced vibrations (harmonic, periodic), introduction to computational methods (Euler, Newmark-Beta, Runge-Kutta), single/multiple DOF systems, vibration isolation and absorption.The course will equip students with in-depth knowledge of kinematics, dynamics, and vibrations as fundamental block subjects of mechanical engineering. Furthermore, students will be able to generate and analyse governing equation(s) to predict motion and performance of real-life mechanical and mechatronic machine elements and systems.
