Teaching Vibrations and Control Labs Online Using Simscape and MATLAB Apps

Date & Time:

Wednesday, June 30, 2021 @ 14:00-15:00

Speaker:

Dr. Ayse Tekes

Ayse Tekes is an assistant professor in the mechanical engineering department at Kennesaw State University since 2016. Her research interests lie in the areas of design, development, modeling, and control of compliant mechanisms and soft robots and improving student understanding by developing 3D printed laboratory equipment for vibrations and control theory courses and creating MATLAB Apps for Vibrations and Control in Simscape for undergraduate engineering courses.

Abstract:

In many institutions, limited resources for laboratory equipment inhibit student learning of dynamics, vibrations, and control concepts due to constraints on the use of available turnkey equipment. As a result, the laboratory components for these courses are often limited as the equipment is expensive, few in number, and bulky. Nonetheless, when provided, hands-on experiences in class and lab enhance student learning through the application of highly complex concepts. Beneficial outcomes include constructing deeper knowledge, modeling, designing experimental systems, developing technical laboratory skills, analyzing acquired data, presenting, and interpreting results. Students need physical experience with the theoretical issues discussed in the classroom to gain a deeper understanding. Although laboratories are essential in undergraduate engineering courses, the challenges for student learning that arose with the COVID-19 crisis and which we are still facing right now have made it much more difficult to achieve course learning objectives tied to the laboratory or hands-on experiences. Teaching undergraduate level dynamics, vibrations, and control theory courses, we realized the need for visualization of basic conceptual principles while the topic is introduced in the classroom. The vast majority of undergraduate students struggle with highly mathematical abstract topics. We developed MATLAB apps that can be utilized as virtual labs to let students simulate and visualize modeling and control of dynamical systems in Simscape for vibrations and control theory courses, and their associated laboratories. This talk will highlight a few examples of how the developed apps can be used for teaching labs online using Simulink and Simscape.
