Title of Speech: Experience-Based Lecture of Vibration and Control Engineering Using Dual Scale Experiments
Abstract: This plenary talk presents an experience-based lecture style for vibration and control engineering in Nagoya University. In the proposed style, experiments of the free vibration using a seismic building with vibration isolation layer and advanced vibration control using an effective small device are provided in combination. In the first trial of this lecture style in 2015, two hundreds of second-year students felt the free vibration of the five-story building with a weight of 5,600 ton inside the building and witnessed the mechanism of the isolation layer. To follow the demonstration experimentally, we have built a small experimental system. The device is composed of a vibration component (flexible structure) corresponding to the building and a cart with a handle corresponding to the ground. They are connected via a linear actuator corresponding to the isolation layer. Students oscillate the cart and observe the motion of the vibration component. In addition, the system has virtual reality cameras to attract students' interest and reduce the size gap influence of the real building and the small experimental system. The second lecture was conducted in 2017. A questionnaire showed that 100% of students valued the lecture style as useful. Since 90% of students valued that providing largescale demonstration lecture and the second lecture in combination as useful, the proposed style achieved a certain result.
