MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS OF VIBRO-ACOUSTIC SYSTEMS
This course will present measurement and analysis techniques for dynamic systems, with particular emphasis on mechanical vibrations and acoustics. Background on vibration of lumped and continuous parameter systems, acoustics, and noise and vibration control will be given. Other concepts include FFTS, windowing, input/output relationship calculations, test methods, transducers, instrumentation, and the use of dynamic signal analyzers. Application to system identification and modal analysis will be included, as well as hardware demonstrations.
