What is Structural Dynamics?

What did they say?

  • Structural Dynamics is an engineering discipline concerned with controlling sound and vibration of structures

  • Some aerospace engineers specialize in this area

  • When engineers design rockets, aircraft, spacecraft, buildings and even musical instruments they control vibration

  • The fundamental concepts in aerospace vehicles apply equally to the design of wind chimes

  • The primary components of these structures are composed of metal tubes!

In this workshop you will learn about natural frequency and the factors that influence frequency.  With what you have learned you will design and build your own wind chime!
