Vibration Engineering (ECMM140)


Detailed Description

Module Code: ECMM140

Module Lecturer(s): Dr Ki Young Koo

This module will provide you with basic knowledge and understanding relevant to vibration engineering of large civil engineering structures. Particular emphasis will be given to theoretical concepts of single- (SDOF) and multiple-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) systems which form foundations of general structural dynamics for dealing with wind, blast and impact engineering disciplines.

The module will then focus you on specific problems of environmental vibrations affecting serviceability of structures occupied and dynamically excited by humans (floors, footbridges and grandstands) or by ground borne vibrations due to over and underground traffic, construction and blasting. Methods and tools used routinely for measuring and analysing vibration signals from these structures will be described.

Bookings are limited to one person per module. If you require multiple bookings please contact empsmsc@exeter.ac.uk.
