Vibration is undesirable in most engineering systems. The ill effects of vibration include fatigue failure, severe damages due to resonance, malfunctioning of sensitive instruments/systems, loss of accuracy of workpiece due to vibration of machine tools, etc. This course will give a brief overview about the various strategies to control such vibrations in systems and principle behind them.
Prof. Bishakh Bhattacharya is currently Dr. Gurumukh D. Mehta and Veena M. Mehta Chair Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and joint faculty Design Programme, IIT Kanpur. His research interest primarily lies in vibration control, structural health monitoring, energy harvesting system, intelligent system design and Child-Reconfigurable Robot Interaction.
