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.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'Vibrations is a brilliant and polished presentation of vibration understanding and analyses for a very broad spectrum of dynamical engineering system applications and readers. If I could own only one book on vibration, this would be my choice.' C. Dan Mote, Jr, National Academy of EngineeringSee more reviews
'A comprehensive treatment of engineering vibrations, written by eminent researchers in the field, notable for its treatment of both linear and nonlinear vibrations using techniques from the frequency and time domains.' Michael J. Leamy, Georgia Institute of Technology
'The authors' research, augmented by their considerable experience as leading scientists in mechanical vibrations, offers a unique and crucial perspective for future mechanical and structural engineers. This book's elegant style and nice illustrations will prove extremely beneficial to such engineers, helping solve a great variety of vibration problems coming from new industrial products.' Haiyan Hu, Beijing Institute of Technology
'This is a very well-written book with clear explanations and good examples for the readers to connect theory with practice. Integrating principles of linear and nonlinear vibrations throughout the book in a balanced manner is a great idea.' Kon-Well Wang, University of Michigan
