In this intermediate level course, engineers with backgrounds in mechanical, structural or related engineering disciplines will learn how to compute natural frequencies and response to dynamic forces, and designs to reduce vibration of new and existing systems. Rotating equipment, their supports and foundations, vibration absorbers (tuned mass dampers), vibration isolators, blast loads, earthquakes, transportation vibrations, flow-induced vibrations and vibration monitoring are all discussed. How to benchmark analytical results with test results or field data will also be taught. Emphasis is not on derivation of equations, but rather on assumptions and limitations of various analysis techniques and guidelines on when to use which method.
Sixteen detailed, step-by-step worked-out examples of analysis and design are presented at appropriate junctures throughout the course. Five case histories are presented to demonstrate how the various concepts and methods presented in the course are applied in complex vibration projects.
You Will Learn To
- Compute frequencies of complex equipment, structures and systems
- Compute response to machinery operations, human activities, earthquakes and blast loads
- Explain the different methods of reducing vibrations of new and existing equipment and structures, including frequency separation techniques, dampening, vibration absorbers, tuned mass dampers, and vibration isolation
- Explain information and perform calculations related to special topics, such as solid-fluid systems and flow-induced vibrations

Who Should Attend
Engineers, engineering supervisors and managers responsible for designing or qualifying mechanical components, equipment, piping and structures subjected to dynamic forces; those responsible for auditing, reviewing, or approving shock and vibration analysis tasks. Those with a few years of experience in vibration analysis as well as those who are new to the area will benefit. No prior knowledge of structural dynamics is necessary.
