Measurement of Vibration of Structures Using Laser Vibrometry
This project involves the measurement of vibration of structures using laser vibrometry. The goal of the project is to modify the current laboratory setup to accommodate a new structure (a fixed-fixed beam with some added mass), and then use the available two laser vibrometers to determine its resonance frequencies and mode shapes of vibrations.
Advisor: Pezhman Hassanpour, firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Duration: Two Semesters
The ideal candidate for this position will make a simple structure for the experiment, perform the measurement, and analyze the measurement data.
Student Background Required:
Student background should include:
- Undergraduate mechanical engineering with an introductory course on Vibrations.
- Knowledge of MATLAB.
- Applicants with undergraduate electrical engineering background will be considered too.
- Applicants must have experience with LabView to help with developing an in-house software to work with the laser vibrometers.
