Additionally, freshman and junior mechatronics’ students compete and showcase their skills.

Senior Design Projects

Modern day vibration mitigation systems are often made up of springs and dampers. These two components help control the velocity and displacement of a system. However, there are very few systems that incorporate any mechanical elements that control the acceleration of a system. These mechanical components go by the name of “Inerter”. The fundamental concept of the ball screw inerter is to convert linear motion to rotational motion, and store that energy in a flywheel. The storage of this energy can be used to effectively dampen vibrations.
