MENG 322 Machine Theory and Dynamics


Department: BSc in Electro Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: To provide an understanding of the application of simple mathematical models and vibration problems in engineering systems. Describe mathematically the behaviour of simple mechanical vibrating systems. Determine the response of these systems to transient and harmonic excitation. Analyse systems with more than one degree of freedom and provide practical experience of vibration measurement.
