The aim of the subject 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 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, dynamic behaviour of electromagnetic controlled systems.

This course presents the relevant principles for understanding structural dynamics and its relationship with and design of machines. Topics covered include eigenvalue problems, modal analysis, frequency response and transient response. Discrete systems of complex structures are developed using numerical methods such as finite element or matrix structural analysis. The last part of the course is dedicated to the study of the dynamic analysis of rotating machinery and dynamic behavior of electromagnetic controlled systems. The course work includes computer algebra, computer simulation, and experiments in the laboratory.

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.

After this course, students will understand how to evaluate the dynamic behavior of mechanical systems. Students will acquire the ability to integrate structure dynamics in a wider spectrum of machine design problems. The ability to critically interpret the results will also be acquired. In addition, students will learn how to produce a technical report to disseminate the work done during the Project activities.

A good knowledge of the basic concepts of applied mechanics and of the methods of static stress analysis is required. A basic ability in using the relevant computer codes is also required, although no previous experience with specific numerical tools is needed.

To fully understand the topics of this course, students need a good knowledge of the basic concepts of kinematics, force-momentum formulation for systems of particles and rigid bodies and static stress analysis. Students should also be familiar with work-energy concepts such as virtual work and Lagrange's equations. Basic skills in the use of relevant computer codes is also required, although no previous experience with specific numerical tools is necessary.

The subject is based on a total of 38 hours of lectures plus 24 hours of classroom and laboratory exercises.
Lectures will be held with the support of the blackboard, slides and notes.
The exercise classes will deal with a number of exercises aimed to a better understanding of the subjects dealt with during theoretical classes and in a number of projects, the students will prepare in team. The technical reports on the projects will deal specific problems of dynamic structural analysis related to specific machine elements.
Some of these exercises will be performed in a computer lab, using specific numerical tools, while others will be performed in the experimental lab.
The documentation used during the theoretical classes and the exercises will be made available to the students through the website.

The overall course includes 39 hours of lessons and 21 hours shared between classroom exercises (Tutorial) and laboratory exercises. Lectures take place with the support of the blackboard, slides and notes. Tutorials aim to a better understanding of the subjects covered during the lessons. The activities indicated as “Project” deal with specific dynamic problems related to the elements of the machine. The technical Reports on the Projects will be discussed during the oral exam. We recommend that students join a team of 2/3 people team to prepare the Technical Reports. The documentation used during the theoretical lessons and the tutorial will be made available to the students through the website.
