About this Textbook

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is composed of 30 chapters, subdivided into three parts. … The bibliography is excellent including 173 references for general mechanical vibrations, 26 references for nonlinear and chaotic vibrations and 26 references for dynamics of rotating and reciprocating machines. In addition the index seems well suited for the subject matter presented in the text. This text is very appropriate for graduate level studies in vibration and machine design; and is perfect as a reference for mechanical engineers involved with the design of machine elements." (Reginald H. Keith, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. 57 (2), 2009)

"This book … presents a profound theoretical background of general vibration mechanics and control for linear dynamics of discrete systems and analysis of the dynamic behaviour of continuous system. … The work is intended for wide audience: this would include specialists in vibration dynamics and control, students in a range of mechanical, aeronautical and mechatronic specialties. … it is also useful for design engineers … . equally addressed to applied mathematicians and physicists working in the field of control theory and mechanics." (Jan Lovíšek, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1160, 2009)

“This book is an excellent professional reference for students and engineers as well as academicians in order to grasp mechanical vibration and control fundamentals. … author has done an excellent job of trying to include all aspects of vibration and structural dynamics. It is interesting to note some of the features … as extra details for academic purposes. The features are the short preface for each chapter and remarks and examples throughout the chapter in addition to the exercises at the end of each chapter.” (Hanim Salleh, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 17 (4), 2012)
