An Introduction to Vibration Control in Buildings
This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the technology, systems and design practices for the design of vibration isolation measures in buildings.
Structural vibration in buildings, which results in feelable vibration, produces structural or superficial damage of building components or interferes with equipment operation is unacceptable. In addition large building components that vibrate can produce unacceptable sound levels.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the principles of vibration isolation in buildings.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about the materials and devices used for vibration control
- Learning about the physical parameters for vibrations that are feelable by humans whose perceptions ranges from imperceptible to very disagreeable
- Learning about vibrations which pose a structural risk to buildings
- Learning about the five types of mounting assemblies for machines that produce objectionable vibrations
- Learning about steel spring vibration isolators
- Learning about the different types of pad-type isolators
- Learning how and when inertia blocks are employed
- Learning how to specify isolation measures for axial-flow and centrifugal fans installed in buildings
