For undergraduate courses in Vibration Engineering. Retaining the style of its previous editions, this text presents the theory, computational aspects, and applications of vibrations in as simple a manner as possible. With an emphasis on computer techniques of analysis, it gives expanded explanations of the fundamentals, focusing on physical significance and interpretation that build upon students’ previous experience.
Each self-contained topic fully explains all concepts and presents the derivations with complete details. Numerous examples and problems illustrate principles and concepts. Clear, detailed presentation. Each topic in Mechanical Vibrations is self-contained, with all concepts explained fully and the derivations presented with complete details.
Each chapter contains an extensive set of problems emphasizing a variety of applications of the material covered in that chapter. In total, there are more than 1150 problems, with solutions in the instructor’s Solutions Manual.
