Modal and Spectrum Analysis Data Dependent Systems in State Space Sudhakar M. Pandit Written for scientists and engineers dealing with real data—experimental or operational—this important work presents a untried and comparative treatment of modal and spectrum analysis of dynamic systems and structures. The book illustrates how the use of Data Dependent Systems (DDS) unites the two methods of analysis and simplifies many of the techniques, while providing more accurate, realistic, and easily interpreted results. Both time (modal analysis) and frequency domain (spectrum analysis) methods are systematically covered to demonstrate the relative merits and disadvantages of each. Supplements include extensive tables of results from real data, more than 50 figures (including unique plots of multivariate spectra and transfer functions) and a detailed bibliography. 1991 (0 471-63705-X) 415 pp. Vibration Problems in Engineering Fifth Edition William Weaver, Jr., Stephen P. Timoshenko, and Donovan H. Young "A substantial revision of the previous edition...it remains a very good undergraduate text and handy reference work." —Journal of Sound and Vibration While keeping much of Timoshenko’s classic work on vibration theory intact, this Fifth Edition features new information on powerful, modern computational techniques. Written in a style that gives concrete physical meaning to terms and equations, the current edition includes such enhancements as revised problems, examples of applications, and computer programs. Highlights include a thorough presentation of multidegree of freedom systems using flexibility and stiffness formulation; vibration of continuous systems; a new chapter on the finite-element method; plus matrix and numerical techniques for problem solving. 1990 (0 471-63228-7) 610 pp.

Prepared by the world's leading acoustics company, BNN Laboratories, it covers every aspect of noise and vibration control. Examines engineering principles for designing quiet conditions into pumps and power plant equipment, air conditioning systems, industrial machinery, factories and more. Methods for designing appropriate noise and vibration control treatments are also discussed. Techniques for assessing conditions are demonstrated as well as methods for designing appropriate noise and vibration control applications. A condensed collection of current authoritative design information, criteria and references are also included.From the Inside Flap:
Noise and Vibration Control Engineering is a completely new, single-source guide to all aspects of noise and vibration control. It offers mechanical, acoustical, architectural, electrical and chemical engineers and students the engineering principles necessary for designing quiet conditions into industrial machinery, motors, power plant equipment, air-conditioning systems, factories, buildings, and transportation systems. Contributors are among the world's leading acoustical scientists and consultants, many associated with Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc. Assuming only a general engineering background, Noise and Vibration Control Engineering begins with an examination of acoustic basics: decibels, sound power, and the properties of the various sources that create noise. The book identifies key parameters which govern sound power output and examines how noise can be controlled at its sources. Readers learn how sound propagates outdoors, around or over barriers and in enclosed spaces such as rooms and vehicles. Noise and Vibration Control Engineering moves on to discuss the basic components of noise control: active noise control techniques, sound absorbers, mufflers, enclosures, wrappings, barriers, walls, vibration isolators and vibration damping materials and their proper use in solving common noise and vibration control problems. The book shows how to control noise caused by gas flows, ventilation systems, machines, reciprocating engines and gears. Finally, it examines to what level noise must be reduced so as not to affect work performance, enjoyment of speech, radio, TV and music at home or in public spaces or to damage hearing. In addition to offering techniques to assess problems, take measurements, and implement appropriate noise and vibration control treatments, Noise and Vibration Control Engineering contains a condensed collection of authoritative, up-to-date design information, criteria and references. Finally, it provides comprehensive information about laws and codes governing noise and its control.
