MAE 3260 System Dynamics

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 have an ability to build up a correct 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: An ability to use linear and nonlinear system simulation and analysis tools to study transient and frequency response of systems. Outcome 3: An ability to work with modern dynamics lab equipment. Outcome 4: An ability to design dynamic parameters in order to meet dynamic performance requirements such as a bound on vibration transmission. Outcome 5: An ability to understand and design rudimentary feedback controllers to meet performance specifications on dynamic response.

Permission of instructor required if not a Cornell Engineering student.
