Description
Introduction to Vibration in Engineering is an aerospace-specific text that helps students master the fundamentals of vibration. Students learn how to construct equations of motion using the energy approach, as well as the Newton's second law, and how to use analytical and computational tools for vibration analysis.

Clear and concise, the book covers free and forced vibration response, steady state responses of single degree of freedom systems, and the multi-degrees of freedom systems. Other topics include dynamic stability as well as aeroelasticity, vibration absorber, and finite element modeling. Each of the eight chapters features problem sets that allow students to immediately apply what they have learned.

Designed for undergraduate seniors and first-year graduate students, Introduction to Vibration in Engineering is written for one-semester courses in aerospace and mechanical engineering and requires sophomore-level mathematics including elementary linear algebra.
