Vibrations (3rd ed.)

Balakumar Balachandran,

Vibrations
 
 
This new edition explains how vibrations can be used in a broad spectrum of applications and how to meet the challenges faced by engineers and system designers. The text integrates linear and nonlinear systems, and covers the time domain and the frequency domain, responses to harmonic and transient excitations, and discrete and continuous system models. It focuses on modeling, analysis, prediction, and measurement to provide a complete understanding of the underlying physical vibratory phenomena and their relevance for engineering design. Knowledge is put into practice through numerous examples with real-world applications in a range of disciplines, detailed design guidelines applicable to various vibratory systems, and over forty online interactive graphics which provide a visual summary of system behaviors and enable students to carry out their own parametric studies. Some thirteen new tables act as a quick reference for self-study, detailing key characteristics of physical systems and summarizing important results. This is an essential text for undergraduate and graduate courses in vibration analysis, and a valuable reference for practicing engineers.
