Presenting theory, computational aspects and applications in as simple a manner as possible, this text on vibration engineering, now in its third edition, is a straightforward introduction to the subject. It provides thorough coverage of basic material with both mathematical and physical insight. This edition features increased use of real-world examples and problems and the addition of open-ended design problems and examples. Fortran programs are included on an accompanying disk.
