Advanced Dynamics and Vibrations ENG312
This unit explores the dynamics of rigid bodies in three dimensions and also the vibration of systems. The dynamics part of the unit examines the kinematics and kinetics of rigid bodies in three dimensions, dynamic balancing of rotating equipment and gyroscopic motion. The vibrations part of the unit is directed at developing your understanding of the analysis and design of dynamic mechanical systems. This includes modal analysis of multi degree of freedom systems, modal matrix, characterisation of modes by generalised mass, stiffness and damping, modes of vibration of distributed systems, including beams and plates.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2023 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2023 will be available from the 1st October 2022. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
