This course is an introduction to acoustics and vibrations in design. Free, and forced vibrations of systems will be examined. Applied theory includes the study of the fundamental single-degree-of-freedom (DOF) and the 2DOF systems using Newton's law of motion, the energy method, Lagrange's equations, and determination of natural frequencies, acoustics, properties, and noise standards. Design part of the course includes systems under shock and impact loading, vibration isolation and control. In addition the course will include noise control and design of mechanical systems for noise reduction. The course includes design oriented lab and assignments, and design based project.
