This course builds on the Fundamental vibrations theory course, with a focus on applications.

It will cover vibration serviceability design and assessment, structural performance monitoring and vibration mitigation.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the process for checking vibration serviceability of floors, footbridges, grandstands and tall buildings
  • Have an appreciation of vibration testing and monitoring technologies
  • Have an appreciation of the main mitigation technologies available for dealing with vibration serviceability problems

Intended for

Civil and structural engineers dealing with problems of building and structural vibration, particularly in buildings, footbridges, and stadiums.

Entry criteria

Either attendance of the Vibration Serviceability: Fundamental Vibrations Theory course or a strong background in structural vibrations theory and knowledge of matrix calculations, solution of second order differential equations, complex numbers and functions, Fourier series, and basics of finite element analysis.

Recommended reading: Williams,  M (2016). Structural Dynamic. London: CRC Press. 

Tutor

Professor Aleksandar Pavic

Aleksandar is an expert in vibration serviceability of slender civil engineering structures that are occupied and dynamically excited by humans. He co-authored and carried out experimental verification of the most advanced worldwide design guidelines on crowd dynamic loading of grandstands, published by the Institution in 2008.

Professor Paul Reynolds

Professor Paul Reynolds is Professor of Structural Dynamics and Control at the University of Exeter. His research interests are in advanced technologies for control of vibrations in civil engineering structures, with a focus on active control of human-induced vibrations.
