This course introduces fundamental vibrations theory.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Understand the key background theory used in vibration serviceability design and assessment
  • Understand the theoretical background of vibration testing and signal analysis
     

Intended for

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

The course is recommended for those relatively new to the field of structural vibrations and those who need to build their understanding of vibration theory.
 

Entry criteria

Participants will need 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.
