Vibration Lab

Free Vibration of a Torsional System

Objective: Investigate the vibration of a multi-degree of freedom system.

Forced Vibration and Vibration Absorber

Objective: Illustrate frequency response and investigate how adding a vibration absorber effects system response.

Vibration of a Model Airplane Wing (Sine)

Objective: Determine natural frequencies and modes of vibration of a continuous structure using swept sine testing.

Vibration of a Model Airplane Wing (Impact)

Objective: Determine natural frequencies and modes of vibration of a continuous structure using impact tests. Use FFT.

Dynamic Balancing

Objective: Balance a rotating system that drives a small piston.

Sound

Objective: Investigate the use of the SPL meter to quantitatively measure noise.
