A resource on vibration that imparts a deep physical as well as mathematical understanding is critical to students who first encounter the subject. Books with an overly mathematical focus can leave them without a grasp of the underlying physics and mechanics. Those that attempt to be reader-friendly often oversimplify the mathematics and mechanics, leaving them with a lack of depth and unprepared for advanced work and complex problems. With a carefully balanced approach, Engineering Vibrations provides a systematic and unified treatment of mechanical and structural vibrations along with rigorous yet approachable mathematical development.
This text advances abstract concepts from first principles. The author weaves together the physical interpretation and fundamental principles with applied problem solving and uses illustrative examples and case studies to reinforce the concepts, encourage effective interpretation of results, and assist in learning the techniques and procedures. Accompanied by more than 500 two- and three-dimensional drawings, the book offers tabulated results of case studies and a table of operators of various one-dimensional continua. It also contains problem-solving flowcharts for solving forced vibration problems for discrete and continuous systems. For each class of system, it explores the fundamental dynamics and studies free and forced vibrations under various conditions.
Buildinga solid understanding of the principles and bases for mechanical and structural vibration, Engineering Vibrations offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the subject of vibrations and progresses systematically to advanced topics.

“A tremendous amount of experience is distilled in this book on engineering vibrations. I am deeply impressed by the brilliance of selection and organization of topics and chapter, technical format and clear and instructive styles, which all result from a rigorous understanding of the need for a book of this scope. The book certainly should be considered an important contribution to the study of engineering vibrations as understandably and appropriately visualized by the author...There is little doubt that each chapter is well and expertly written and well presented. Anyone with serious interest in the study of mechanical and structural vibrations will find this book almost a ‘must have’.”
―Current Engineering Practice, Volume 48, Issue 6
“... balances physics/mechanics and mathematics in this wide-ranging resource for students and professionals working on mechanical and structural vibration. With illustrations, examples and case studies supplementing the text ... Each topic includes a bibliography and exercises.”
―Scitech Book News, December 2006
"...a thoroughly self-consistent and comprehensive book that is both easy to read and mathematically rigorous."
―International Jouranl of Acoustics and Vibration, March 2008
"This book provides a systematic and unified presentation of mechanical and structural vibrations, emphasizing the physical interpretation, fundamental principles and problem solving. This advantage is coupled with rigorous mathematical developments in a form which is readable to advanced undergraduate and graduate university students in engineering and related fields."
―Eugeni Syrkin, in Zentralblatt MATH, 2008
