This lesson contains an example project utilising the shake table rig. Students are asked to analyse control values of displacement by experimenting and studying the effects of several vibration modes on a shake table.

Utilising a 2DOF vibration control system (shake table rig), students design and experiment test controllers. Upon completion of this project, students will be able to analyse system response time, compare performance of different controllers, predict the effects of different vibration modes, and write a lab report reflecting on their experience.
