Labs held in room 3073 ECE Building unless otherwise noted.
** Lab 3 held in room 0036 MEB
Equipment:
The ECP Rectilinear Plant is used to illustrate the behavior of
massspringdamper systems. The drive motor on the left is used to
investigate forced responses, while the three masses, three springs and single
damper can be arranged in a variety of formations. Encoders linked to the
masses communicate the three mass positions to the computer for analysis.
Labs 4 and 5 will use the ECP plant to take a look at step responses, free
responses subject to initial conditions, and identifying modal frequencies and
mode shapes.
The Pendubot
is a two link underactuated robotic pendulum,
developed at UIUC by
