Vibration and Shock Load Spreadsheet Analysis, 4 PDH course is a series of input data and output equations solved by Excel. The student will type numerical values and Excel will perform the calculations. For example, the dimensions and weights of a gear mounted on a shaft supported by bearings are typed into labeled cells and Excel calculates the resonant or critical rotational speed. Excels’ Goal Seek can be used to optimize the gear mounted on a shaft design or the engineering of any other system based on known physical laws. Digitizing engineering calculations with Excel spreadsheets provides legible engineering work that can easily be retrieved anytime in the future.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
