This lesson covers the concept of vibration in continuous systems, focusing on the time domain analysis of linear systems subjected to harmonic input. It explains the difference between discrete and continuous systems, the modeling of dynamic problems, and the impact of damping on system responses. The lesson also introduces the magnification factor and resonance phenomena, and discusses a special technique known as the Half Power Bandwidth for determining the damping ratio. It further explains the concept of logarithmic decrement and how it can be used to measure damping from experimental data. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the frequency response function and how it can be used to determine the damping factor.
