Vibration Dynamics and Control summarizes the fundamentals of the mechanics of vibrations and provides the necessary theoretical background for the subject while also presenting real-life design applications. The material also includes problem sets for use by students and practicing design engineers. Organized for classroom use, this book is comprised of thirty concise chapters. The first part addresses the dynamics of linear, time invariant systems, including basic concepts of linear dynamics of discrete systems, an introduction to the dynamics of controlled structural systems, and analysis of the dynamic behavior of continuous system using discretization techniques. The second part focuses on the study of nonlinear and non-time invariant systems, and stresses the practical aspects of these subjects. The third part incorporates applied aspects of vibration mechanics, such as the dynamics of rotating machines and reciprocating machines. With a unified approach, consistent use of symbols and terminology, and an emphasis on practical applications, Vibration Dynamics and Control is accessible to students and in a range of mechanical, aeronautical, and mechatronic specialties. It is also suitable as a reference work for design engineers specializing in rotor dynamics, torsional vibration, modal analysis, nonlinear mechanics, and controlled systems. An Instructor's Manual with additional supporting material is available to instructors using the book as a required textbook via a link in the right-hand column.
