Course description

Dynamic behavior of mechanical systems: modeling, analysis techniques, and applications; vibrations of single- and multidegree- of-freedom systems; feedback control systems. Computer simulation and experimental studies of vibration and control systems.

Outcome 1: Student will be able to build an accurate dynamic model of a complex mechanical or electromechanical system by a divide-and-conquer approach that makes use of physics, constitutive laws, geometry, and whatever other information one may have about the system.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to use linear and nonlinear system simulation and analysis tools to study transient and frequency response of systems.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to use modern dynamics and control lab equipment to measure, record and analyze system response.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to choose appropriate values for model parameters to meet passive or open-loop performance specifications on dynamic response.

Outcome 5: Students will be able to design closed-loop feedback controllers to meet performance specifications on dynamic response.

This course is subject to cancellation if enrollment is extremely low. Non-Cornell students must get permission of instructor to enroll.
