Featuring excellent coverage of linear and non-linear single degree-of-freedom and multi-degree-of-freedom methods, this book teaches the usage of vibration principles in a broad spectrum of applications. In this introduction for undergraduate college students, authors Balakumar Balachandran and Edward B. Magrab current vibration principles in a general context and illustrate the usage of these rules by carefully chosen examples from completely different disciplines. Their balanced approach integrates principles of linear and nonlinear vibrations with modeling, analysis, prediction, and measurement so that physical understanding of the vibratory phenomena and their relevance for engineering design could be emphasized. The authors also provide design guidelines that are relevant to a wide range of vibratory systems. MATLAB is thoroughly built-in throughout the textual content.
