Find the right course for you!
This course offers a comprehensive exploration of the fundamental principles and advanced techniques in analyzing and managing rotordynamics and vibrations in mechanical systems. Through a combination of theoretical concepts, practical applications, and hands-on exercises, students will develop a strong understanding of torsional natural frequencies, vibrations, critical speeds, and design modifications to optimize rotor behavior.
The course covers various topics, including computational methods, experimental measurements, design considerations, and computer simulations to accurately analyze and model rotor behavior. By the end of this course, students will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to tackle real-world challenges related to rotordynamics, perform vibration measurements, make design modifications, and implement computer simulation programs to evaluate and optimize rotor performance.
Actual case studies are reviewed to demonstrate each of the discussed principles.
Prerequisites: Four years or more training in mechanical technology or mechanical engineering at an accredited college, university or technical school is strongly recommended. Candidates should have a working knowledge of differential equations, use a scientific calculator, and be familiar with the operation of personal computers.
