'Machine Dynamics and Control Lab' is a course offered in the seventh semester of B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Experiments on balancing of reciprocating and rotating masses. Determination of gyroscopic couple, study of governors. Experiments on free vibrations: Bifilar, trifilar, compound pendulums. Damping: damping, and critical damping coefficients, logarithmic decrement, coulomb damping, Natural frequencies of coupled, pendulum. Determination of critical speed of shafts.

Experiments on level, position and speed control. Study of time response of I and II order systems. Analysis of control systems using software packages – exercise on root locus and bode plots.
