The Vibrations part of the course reinforces the modelling and vibrations knowledge from UG level. Building on these skills and mathematical tools, vibrations in more realistic and complex structures are investigated and analysed, increasing the understanding of vibration problems in engineering structures. The main aims of this course in digital control systems are:
In the Acoustics part of the course, the aim is to impart knowledge of the sources and nature of acoustic noise in an engineering environment. The coverage starts with basic physical concepts and leads on to the treatment of vibrating structure/fluid interactions for a number of simple examples of practical interest.
