AMVM Site Root Download link for AMVM Program 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: Vibrations -Free Motion Calculations -Beam Modes for Various End Conditions -Forced Response Wn and Z calculations -The Beat Phenom. -Transmissibility Computations -Forced Motion of N-degree Freedom Systems -Vibration Absorber Design Parameters -Design of a Helmholtz Resonator -Rayleigh Natural Frequencies -Matinv Transmissibility Computations -String Computations with One Degree of Freedom -Beam Vibrations with Attached End Masses Dynamics & Strength -Trifilar Exper. Determination of Mass Moment of Intertia -Transformation of Moment of Intertia Matrices -Products of Intertia by Experiment -Euler Buckling of Beam Columns -Otto Mohr's Circle for Stress and Strain -Strain Rosette Calculations Mathematics -Basic Unit Conversion -Curve Fitting -Simpson's Rule of Approximate Integration -Matrix Diagonalization -Transcendental Equation Root Finder

-Polynomial Root Finder -Linear Equations and Matrix Multiplication -Finite Diff. Solutions to Differential Equations -Lens Simulator with Hyperfocal Distance and Depth of Field Some Screenshots: The Main Screen Free Motion Solver - Determines Wn and Z for all free motion cases Calculates Wn and Z from forced responses Beam modes for various conditions Experimental determination of mass moments of intertia using a trifilar pendulum
