This short course is to let participants understand the finite element method for solving engineering problems (i.e., vibration).  The use of commercial software (ANSYS) will be used to demonstrate the various vibrations as well as to validate the vibration measurements. To obtain the vibration measurements, some practical vibration measurement techniques will be taught and this is usually not provided by external simulation software training.
