It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.



 To understand the basics of dynamics – dynamic behaviour of soils – effects of dynamic loads and the various design methods.

UNIT I THEORY OF VIBRATION 9 Introduction – Nature of dynamic loads – vibrations of single degree freedom system – free vibrations of spring – mass systems – forced vibrations – viscous damping, Transmissibility – Principles of vibration measuring instruments effect of Transient and Pulsating loads – vibrations of multi degree freedom system. 

UNIT II DYNAMIC SOIL PROPERTIES AND BEHAVIOUR 9 Dynamic stress – strain characteristics – principles of measuring dynamic properties – Laboratory Techniques – Field tests – Factors affecting dynamic properties - Typical values- Dynamic bearing capacity – Dynamic earth pressure. 

UNIT III FOUNDATIONS FOR RECIPROCATING MACHINES 9 Types of Machines and Foundations – General requirements – Modes of vibration of a rigid foundation, block method of analysis – Linear Elastic weightless spring method – Elastic half – space method – Analog models ; Design of Block foundation -- Codal Provisions 

UNIT IV FOUNDATION FOR IMPACT AND ROTARY MACHINES 9 Dynamic analysis of impact type machines – Design of Hammer foundations – use of vibrator Absorbers – design – Codal recommendation. Special consideration for Rotary machines – Design criteria – Loads on Turbo Generator Foundation – method of analysis – Design; Dynamic soil – structure – Interaction, Codal Provisions. 

UNIT V INFLUENCE OF VIBRATION AND REMEDIATION 9 Mechanism of Liquefaction–Influencing factors--Evaluation of Liquefaction potential based on SPT-Force Isolation – Motion Isolation – use of spring and damping materials – vibration control of existing machine foundation – screening of vibration – open trenches – Pile Barriers – salient construction aspects of machine Foundations. TOTAL: 45 PERIODS 

 Students are able to design foundation for different machines, access the influence of vibrations and selection of remediation methods based on the nature of vibration, properties and behaviour of soil.
