EML 4220 – Vibrations Fall 2011 1. Catalog Description : Single-degree-of-freedom systems. Multiple-degree-of freedom systems. Applications to mechanical and aerospace structures and systems. 2. Pre-requisites : EGM 3400 or EGM 3401, CGS 2425, EGM 3520 and EGM 4313 3. Course Objectives : This course stresses fundamental engineering science and mathematical principles required for understanding of vibrations. Students will (a) learn the concepts needed for understanding and analysis of the dynamic behavior of vibrating systems, and (b) will develop skills for designing vibrating systems with desired properties that enhance vibration when it is wanted and reduce vibration when it is unwanted. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to 1) Generate simplified mechanics models for vibrating systems 2) Derive the equations of motion of single- and multiple-degree-of-freedom systems using mechanics principles 3) Solve the equations using mathematical methods of ordinary differential equations and linear algebra 4) Analysis of the mathematical solutions to find natural frequencies of the systems and to predict the dynamic response of the systems to external stimuli or excitations 5) Design mechanical systems with prescribed vibratory performance. 4. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component : EML 4220 supports program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The specific ME program outcome supported by this course includes: (1) Using knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations ( ME Program Outcome M2 ); and (2) Being able to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas including the design and realization of such systems. ( ME Program Outcome M4 ) The course content may be categorized as follows: Mathematics 30%, Physical sciences 20%, Engineering sciences 40%, Engineering design 10% 5. Relationship of course to program outcomes : This course supports the mission of the undergraduate Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering program at the University of Florida with respect to following ABET outcomes:
