Most of the vibrating structure are nonlinear in nature. But for simplification of the analysis they have been considered to be linear. Hence, to actually know the response of the system one should study the nonlinear behavior of the system. Here one may encounter multiple equilibrium points or solutions which may be stable or unstable. The response may be periodic, quasiperiodic or chaotic. The present course is a simulation based course where one can visualize the response of different mechanical systems for different resonance conditions. Out of 9 modules, first 8 modules are on developing the equations of motion, solution procedure of these equations and application of them to general single and multi-degree of freedom systems. The last modules which will be covered in 3 weeks taking 3 different applications of current interest are project based and it will give a very good practical exposure. The course will be very useful for undergraduate, post graduate and PhD students in Academic institutions and also practicing engineers in Industry.
INTENDED AUDIENCE :Senior under graduate or post graduate and PhD students in Mechanical Engineering can take this course under Advanced Dynamics domainPREREQUISITES : NoneINDUSTRIES SUPPORT :All the industry dealing with manufacturing, automobile, aerospace etc. will require nonlinear vibration analysis to improve their productivity
