Applied Structural and Mechanical Vibrations

Theory, Methods and Measuring Instrumentation


The fundamental concepts, ideas and methods underlying all vibration phenomena are explained and illustrated in this book. The principles of classical linear vibration theory are brought together with vibration measurement, signal processing and random vibration for application to vibration problems in all areas of engineering. The book pays particular attention to the dynamics of structures, but the methods of analysis presented here apply readily to many other fields.

About The Author

Paolo L. Gatti graduated in nuclear physics from the State University of Milano (Italy) and worked for 12 years for a private engineering company, where he became head of the vibration testing and data acquisition department. Since 2000, he has worked as an independent consultant in mechanical and structural vibrations, acoustics, and statistical analyses of experimental data. In these fields of activity, he is also an accredited technical consultant for the Court of Justice of Milan. He is also the author of Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics for Engineers, published by Spon Press (Taylor & Francis Group) in 2005.
