In this class, you will gain an understanding of the following topics: dynamic equilibrium of single‐degree of freedom systems; free, forced harmonic and transient vibration responses; undamped and damped vibration response; approximate and numerical methods for dynamic analysis; dynamic analysis in time and frequency domain; dynamic equilibrium of multi‐degree of freedom systems; formulation of mass and stiffness matrices; lumped and distributed mass systems; free vibration responses of undamped and damped systems; generalized Eigenvalue problem and model superposition; experimental modal analysis. You can download the **SYLLABUS** for the class.
