about

A thorough treatment of vibration theory and its engineering applications, from simple degree to multi degree-of-freedom system. Focuses on the physical aspects of the mathematical concepts necessary to describe the vibration phenomena. Provides many example applications to typical problems faced by practicing engineers. Includes a chapter on computer methods, and an accompanying disk with four basic Fortran programs covering most of the calculations encountered in vibration problems.
