SE–101C/ MAE–130C MECHANICS III: VIBRATIONS Dr. Van Den Einde Spring 2010 Page 1 CLASS OBJECTIVE SE101C/MAE130C is designed to teach free and forced vibrations of undamped and damped one-degree of freedom systems; vibration isolation, analysis of discrete MDOF systems using matrix representation and normal mode matrix formulation, Lagranges’s equations, modal superposition for analysis of continuous vibrating systems, and introduction to the numerical analysis of complex systems. CLASS CONDUCT Class Hours: Lectures – Tuesdays/Thursdays, 11:00 am - 12:20 pm, Center Hall, Rm. 214 4 th Hour Lecture – Wednesdays, 8:00-8:50 am, HSS, Rm. 1330 Prerequisites: C- or better in Mathematics 20F, SE 101A (or MAE 130A), SE 101B (or MAE 130B), and SE 110A (or MAE 131A). Understanding of integral and differential calculus, differential equations, engineering statics and dynamics, basic solid mechanics. Required Text: Mechanical Vibrations, by Singiresu S. Rao, Fourth Edition, Prentice-Hall, New Jersey, 2003. ISBN#: 0130489875 Course Website: Lectures, homework solutions, and other course materials will be posted at Method of Assessment and Evaluation: Homework & Assignments 15%, Midterms 50% (4 total), Final 35% Raw scores will be curved at the end of the course, in a manner to be determined by the Instructor, such that the class mean equates to roughly a B-. A grade of F may be assigned to a student not meeting the curved minimum criterion for a D, subject to review and judgment by the Instructor.
