Mechanical Vibrations: Theory and Applications adopts an application-based approach to teaching students to apply the principles of learned learning engineering while laying the groundwork for engineering design. This text provides a brief review of the principles of dynamics so that terminology and notation are consistent and apply these principles to obtain mathematical models of dynamic mechanical systems.
The methods of application of these principles are consistent with popular dynamic texts. Numerous pedagogical features have been included in the text to help the student with understanding and retention. These include developing three reference problems that are reviewed in each chapter, creating a coherent chain that links all chapters of the book. It also includes learning outcomes, summaries of key concepts that include key equations and formulas, fully solved examples with real-world examples and examples, as well as an extensive set of exercises that includes objective-type questions.
