For one/two-semester introductory courses in vibration for undergraduates in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics.
Serving as both text and reference manual, this book connects traditional design-oriented topics, the introduction of modal analysis, and the use of MATLAB®, Mathcad®, or Mathematica®. The author provides an unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.
