Machine dynamics

The field of machine dynamics deals with methods for describing the movements or dynamic behavior of systems in production, mobile applications, and also in everyday life. Dynamic forces and moments are essential for the function and operation of machines and are often caused by interactions of mechanical systems with other physical domains. These excitation mechanisms affect the dynamic behavior of the machines and frequently lead to vibration problems. This can result in fatigue phenomena, destruction of components, malfunctions in machines, or acoustic phenomena.

The lecture covers the basics of machine dynamics. You will learn about various methods for analyzing tasks and problems related to machine dynamics, in addition to measures for their solution.

The lecture covers the following topics:

  • Elements and parameters of vibration systems.
  • Modeling and motion equation of linear mechanical vibration systems
  • Input and output variables of mechanical vibration systems
  • Normal and forced vibrations of simple oscillator (SDOF)
  • Normal and forced vibrations of systems with multiple degree of freedom (MDOF)
  • Mechanical oscillators with distributed parameters (Continuous systems)
  • Rotordynamics
  • Influence of interactions on vibration behavior
  • Numerical analysis of mechanical vibration system
  • Experimental analysis: Identification, monitoring, and diagnosis
  • Measures of vibration damping
