The aim of the subject is to provide the students with the basic knowledge needed for the structural dynamic analysis and the dynamic design of machines. Computational methods, and more in detail the numerical methods more common in the design practice will be intorduced. Theoretical aspects needed to obtain the deeper knowledge of the subject required to operate in the present innovative industrial environment are not neglected. The last part of the course is dedicated to the study of the dynamic analysis of rotating machinery, reciprocating engines, dynamic behaviour of electromagnetic controlled systems.

The increment of the productivity in production sites and power generation plants, the improvement of the transportation systems and in general the reduction of the environmental impacts rather than the improvement of the life quality is pushing the design and construction of high performing machines and lighter structures. Their dynamic design is therefore receiving always more attention.
In this context, the aim of the subject of Dynamic Design of Machines is to give the students the basic knowledge needed for the structural dynamic analysis and the dynamic design of machines. Computational methods, and more in detail numerical methods more common in the design practice will be introduced. Theoretical aspects needed to obtain the deeper knowledge of the subjects required to operate in the present innovative industrial environment are taken into account. The design and construction of machines equipped with electromagnetic controlled systems is not neglected.
The second part of the course is dedicated to the dynamic study and design of rotating machinery and reciprocating engines introducing adequate numerical methods.
The theoretical studies will be supported by exercise lectures that will be devoted to solve specific items. The format of the exercises is similar to the ones that the students have to solve at the written exam. Exercise lectures will be completed by the development of project works taken from real industrial applications.
Additional laboratory experience are thought to involve students in real experiments to acquire the sensitivity that numerical results should be supported by experimental evidences.

Students are required to learn the basics of the dynamics of vibration and of the analytical and numerical methods commonly used for machine design. Students must learn how to apply this knowledge to the actual dynamic study of machines and their elements, using them in a machine design context. The ability of interpreting in a critical way the results obtained, in particular through numerical methods, is also required. Student must also learn to produce technical documentation of the work done.

The assessment will include a written test followed by an oral examination. To be allowed to the oral exam the student must have passed the written test with at least 18/30 rating.
Written test
The written test will consist of 30 multiple choice tests (correct answer: 1 point; no answer 0 points; wrong answer: -0.5 points) plus 8 exercises (correct answer: 2 points; no or wrong answer: 0 points) to be answered in 2 hours. At least 15 tests and 4 exercises must be answered. No books, notes or other material are allowed at the written test. Use of a cell phone or other communication device will cause immediate expulsion.
Oral exam
If the rating of the written test is between 18/30 and 23/30 (included) the oral exam may be
substituted by a discussion on the project report. This can produce an increase or a decrease of the rating up to 2 points, depending on how the project are made. A complete failure of answering questions about the project report causes a failure of the exam. If the student aims to obtain more than 23/30 or he has answered less than 15 tests and 4 exercises the oral exam is compulsory.
If the rating of the written test is in between 24/30 and 30/30 the oral exam is compulsory.
The oral exam includes at any rate a discussion on the project reports. A failure of answering the questions on the project reports or the presentation of incomplete projects causes a complete failure of the exam.
It is recommended to book the exam only when there is a reasonable expectation to actually giving the exam.
The exam rules stated for the past years will apply to students who have followed the course in the past.
