Shock and Vibration Handbook
Cyril M. Harris
McGraw-Hill, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 1000 pages
Widely used as the most authoritative and comprehensive reference work on shock and vibration in print, this mechanical engineering classic has undergone major revisions. This edition now devotes more pages to the latest vibration instrumentation based on computer-chip technology, innovative computer techniques for solving practical vibration problems, and the new measurement techniques currently being encountered by engineers. Practical in its approach, it covers shock and vibration fundamental, instrumentation and measurements, data analysis and testing and equipment design and packaging.
