At the end of this program the, student is expected to assess the dynamic properties of soil and
various design parameters required for the design of machine foundation as well as design of
foundation for various reciprocating machines.
UNIT I INTRODUCTION 9
Vibration of elementary systems-vibratory motion-single degree freedom system-free and forced
vibration with and without damping
UNIT II WAVES AND WAVE PROPAGATION 9
Wave propagation in an elastic homogeneous isotropic medium- Raleigh, shear and
compression waves-waves in elastic half space
UNIT III DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF SOILS 9
Elastic properties of soils-coefficient of elastic, uniform and non-uniform compression - sheareffect of vibration dissipative properties of soils-determination of dynamic properties of soilcodal
UNIT IV DESIGN PROCEDURES 9
Design criteria -dynamic loads - simple design procedures for foundations under reciprocating
machines - machines producing impact loads - rotary type machines82
UNIT V VIBRATION ISOLATION 9
Vibration isolation technique-mechanical isolation-foundation isolation-isolation by locationisolation
by barriers- active passive isolation tests.
