ME730A - Modal Analysis: Theory and Practice (2017, 2018)

Course will cover the theory and practical aspects of the processes involved in testing of structural components with the objective of obtaining a mathematical description of their dynamic behavior. Main ingredients of the course will be the study of the theoritical basis of vibrations, details and functioning of vibration measuring instruments, digital signal processing of measurements, and detailed analysis of measured data. Laboratory sessions will provide instructive guidelines for dynamic testing, selection/placement considerations of sensors and actuators, and for system identification using modal paramater extraction methods. The course will motivate solutions for testing, monitoring and diagnosis of common structural components found in the machine tool/automotive/aerospace/ship building/civil industries.

ME668A - Machining dynamics (2016, 2017, 2019)

Course covers modeling the mechanics and dynamics of machining operations, and their interactions with the machine tool system. Students will gain advanced knowledge of machining process modeling as well as vibration analysis of machine tools. Well-designed laboratory sessions will provide user-level familiarity with machine tool dynamics testing equipment and machining process monitoring equipment. Course will equip students to diagnose machining process related issues, and will motivate practical solutions for some industrial problems in the machine tool/cutting tool/automotive/aerospace industries
