  • Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Modelsby Sondipon Adhikari

    Wiley 2014; US$ 125.00

    Since Lord Rayleigh introduced the idea of viscous damping in his classic work "The Theory of Sound" in 1877, it has become standard practice to use this approach in dynamics, covering a wide range of applications from aerospace to civil engineering. However, in the majority of practical cases this approach is adopted more for mathematical convenience... more...

  • On the Edge of Earthby Steven Lambakis

    The University Press of Kentucky 2013; US$ 42.00

    " The United States has long exploited Earth's orbits to enhance security, generate wealth, and solidify its position as a world leader. America's ambivalence toward military activities in space, however, has the potential to undermine our future security. Many in Washington possess a peculiar regard for space and warfare. Some perceive space as a... more...

  • Flow-Induced Vibrationsby Tomomichi Nakamura; Shigehiko Kaneko; Fumio Inada; Minoru Kato; Kunihiko Ishihara; Takashi Nishihara; Njuki W Mureithi

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 125.00

    In many plants, vibration and noise problems occur due to fluid flow, which can greatly disrupt smooth plant operations. These flow-related phenomena are called flow-induced vibration. This book explains how and why such vibrations happen and provides hints and tips on how to avoid them in future plant design. The world-leading author team doesn?t... more...
