Advanced Vibrations: A Modern Approach is presented at a theoretical-practical level and explains mechanical vibrations concepts in detail, concentrating on their practical use. Related theorems and formal proofs are provided, as are real-life applications. Students, researchers and practicing engineers alike will appreciate the user-friendly presentation of a wealth of topics including but not limited to practical optimization for designing vibration isolators, and transient, harmonic and random excitations.
Contains unique material based on statement-proof-examples
Derives equations of motion using Newton-Euler and Lagrange methods
Presents optimization of vibrating systems not normally covered in standard vibration books
