The aim of the course is to provide the students with the tools for the dynamic identification and the vibration control of civil structures. After introducing the basics of linear random dynamics, Experimental Modal Analysis (EMA) and Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) are discussed introducing the main frequency- and time-domain identification methods. Basic knowledge on the techniques for passive vibration control and the seismic isolation of structures is provided. Numerical and experimental laboratories for the application of the methods introduced in the course are also developed.
The course provides the students with the theoretical foundation and operational tools for the dynamic identification of structures, by means of time- and frequency-domain methods, the bases of passive control techniques and seismic isolation.
The main learning outcomes of the Couse are:
The course is organized in class teaching (approximately 35 hours), computer lab (approximately 15 hours) and experimental laboratory (approximately 4 hours).
Dynamic Identification: Experimental Modal Analysis (EMA) e Operational Modal Analysis (OMA). EMA: transducers, excitation mechanisms, identification methods, signal processing. Probability theory and statistics: random variables, random vectors and probabilistic models. Random processes and stationarity. Stationary random dynamic response of linear elastic structures. OMA: frequency and time domain identification techniques. Passive vibration control and seismic isolation.
