## Passive vibration controlA comprehensive account concerning the vibration control of equipment and tools as well as sound. Addresses those passive means developed over the years to control and restrict the level of vibration which may be produced. The first section contains the background vibration theory essential to understanding the nature of structural vibration and the structural parameters on which vibration levels depend. The latter half is devoted to the three parameters which can be tuned: stiffness, mass and damping. Describes various methods of passive vibration control techniques. Results of the author's internationally renowned research on damping are included. |
