about

This essential textbook concerns analysis and control of engineering mechanisms, which includes almost any apparatus with moving parts used in daily life, from musical instruments to robots. A particular characteristic of this book is that it presents with considerable breadth and rigor both vibrations and controls. Many contemporary texts combine both of these topics in a single, one term course. This text supports the more favorable circumstance where the material is covered in a one year sequence contains enough material for a two semester sequence, but it can also be used in a single semester course combining two topics. "Mechanical Systems: A Unified Approach to Vibrations and Controls" presents a common notation and approach to these closely related areas. Examples from the both vibrations and controls components are integrated throughout this text.
Dr. Roger Gans is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Rochester
