Focusing on applications rather than rigorous proofs, this volume is suitable for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students concerned with vibration problems. In addition, it serves as a practical handbook for performing vibration calculations.
An introductory chapter on fundamental concepts is succeeded by explorations of frequency response of linear systems and general response properties, matrix analysis, natural frequencies and mode shapes, singular and defective matrices, and numerical methods for modal analysis. Additional topics include response functions and their applications, discrete response calculations, systems with symmetric matrices, continuous systems, and parametric and nonlinear effects. The text is supplemented by extensive appendices and answers to selected problems.
This volume functions as a companion to the author's introductory volume on random vibrations (see below). Each text can be read separately; and together, they cover the entire field of mechanical vibrations analysis, including random and nonlinear vibrations and digital data analysis.
