Mechanical Engineering Technical Session: Dynamics II - Feel the Vibe
In this paper, two vibration systems designed and prototyped by mechanical engineering students at Mississippi State University are demonstrated at first. Those systems would help students to better understand damping effects and fluid viscous damper in a vibration system and this paper explains how the students applied knowledge learned from their vibration class to develop those systems and how to use the developed system to demonstrate vibration phenomena taught in the class. After that, evaluation results obtained from the Fall 2018 vibration class are presented and discussed. From the results, it can be confirmed that the implementation of the vibration system design into the class helped the students to develop their problem solving and teamwork skills and enabled the teacher to achieve the goals of that course. The Fall 2018 course evaluation results are clearly better than the results collected from Fall 2017 class, which indicates the improvement of teaching effectiveness and quality in that course. It is expected that the vibration course will continue to improve with more student designed vibration apparatus being implemented into the curriculum.
