Owned by Prof. Bruce H. Karnopp Ph.D. University of Michigan
Final development by Alexander Leung during the MRC/UROP Program of 2008

AMVM is a software suite designed to assist with many concepts of mechanical engineering.
It has support for various calculations involving Vibrations, Dynamics & Strength, and Mathematics.

Previously only available on DOS, it was updated in 2008 to support launching on modern Windows platforms, including Windows 7.

The final result involved:
-20 years of student work
-32,000 lines of code!

AMVM is in actuality a collection of programs capable of the following:

	-Free Motion Calculations
	-Beam Modes for Various End Conditions
	-Forced Response Wn and Z calculations
	-The Beat Phenom.
