What they said about the first edition Very well written and. can be recommended for graduate research level students as well as practising engineers.” – Journal of Structural Engineering” Useful for engineers and physicists interested in vibration theory and applications. Throughout. there is a good balance of time- and frequency-domain methods.” – Applied Mechanics Reviews” This heavily revised second edition continues the first edition s dual focus on the mathematical theory and the practical aspects of engineering vibrations analysis and measurement, making it an invaluable reference for advanced students and professionals working in the field. The book is divided into two parts. Part one considers the theory and methods of engineering vibrations in order of increasing complexity, from free- and forced-vibrations of single-degree-of-freedom systems, multiple-degree-of-freedom systems and continuous systems, to modal analysis, stochastic processes and random vibrations also including a number of worked-out examples in every chapter. Part two deals specifically with the measurement of vibrations in real-world applications, illustrating the main ideas involved in the measurement process and providing guidelines and suggestions on how to accomplish this task by electronic means. A comprehensive description of the required hardware is provided. It now includes new material on vibration isolation, a revised chapter on probability and statistics and new material on stochastic processes, digital filtering and digital signal processing. Technological aspects have been brought up to date with the latest developments in the field, including details on the most recent sensors made in MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) silicon-based technology.
