Vibration: Fundamentals and Practice provides the background and techniques that allow successful design, analysis, and modification of vibration in mechanical systems. It focuses on the practical aspects of vibration-the applications and design considerations directly related to modifying vibrational behavior in mechanical devices and structures. The author presents a uniform and coherent treatment of the subject, integrating material on instrumentation, experimentation, design, and control and offering numerous case studies and worked examples. Introduces practical applications and experimental techniques in the very beginning, then uniformly integrates them throughout the book o Provides mathematics and dynamics background in appendices Includes many worked examples and case studies o Describes the industry-standard and state-of-the-art software tools for analysis and design of vibratory systems and illustrates them with examples o Offers analogies to other oscillatory systems, such as electrical and fluid systems, and contrasts these with thermal systems
