Project 11 (Video) [21 FP Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fluency PointsÃ¢â‚¬Â]: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Arbitrary ExcitationÃ¢â‚¬Â
In a one-minute video, present an analysis of a real-life forced Ã¢â‚¬Å“arbitraryÃ¢â‚¬Â 1-DOF vibration
(due to a step forcing function) of a structure via experiment and theoretical calculations
Description:
In a video that lasts no longer than 60 seconds:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢
Identify or design a 1-DOF forced vibration of a structure in or around your house,
where the external excitation is a step function that looks like:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢
Explain the phenomenon and the vibration behavior by:
Ã¢â€”Â¦ Conducting a simple experiment to capture the motion of the vibrating structure,
and graphing the observed vibration in a displacement vs time plot; and:
Ã¢â€”Â¦ Performing a theoretical analysis and visualizing the solution in a displacment vs
time plot, by using the Ã¢â‚¬Å“arbitraryÃ¢â‚¬Â nonharmonic excitation theory.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢
Make concluding remarks that may include a comparison of the experimental and
analytical results, sources of error, validity of your assumptions, etc.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢
Also reflect on your journey of making the video and what you’ve learned.

Must voice narrate your explanation
Individual work
Make it fun yet educational
Shoot plenty of raw footage, then edit using a free software
Speak close to the mic
