Students, who pass the course satisfactorily will be able to:

make modal analysis of damped and undamped multi degree of freedom systems to determine free and forced vibration responses

obtain and use various forms of frequency response functions (FRFs)

understand the relation between spatial, modal and response mathematical models of linear structures

obtain reduced mathematical models of large structures

expand experimentally measured mode shape data

compare theoretical modal data/FRFs with experimental counterparts by using the metrics developed for this purpose

use structural coupling and structural modification methods in order to reduce computational effort for the analysis of large structures

apply modal identification techniques to determine modal models of MDOF systems

obtain modal models for nonlinear MDOF systems and use them in harmonic response analysis
