Mechanical Vibration Remote Laboratory Development using iLab Shared Architecture

Nasri Brahim, Ennetta Ridha, Bouallègue Sofienne


This paper focuses on the implementation of the first remote laboratory in the mechanical field being used by the Higher Institute of Industrial Systems of Gabès (ISSIG)-Gabès University, Tunisia. The developed remote laboratory is achieved thanks to the e-Sience Tempus project. The control system for this remote laboratory was implemented using LabVIEW software. The experiment studies the forced vibrations system. The students access our platform via the internet to determine the resonance frequency of damping forced vibration from the amplitude vs. excitation frequency and the phase angle vs. excitation curves. The students also determined the damping ration for system via phase angle vs. excitation frequency curve. All online experiments were deployed on the interactive version of iLab Shared Architecture (ISA).
