Theory of Vibration with Applications
by William T. Thomson
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.
This edition features a new chapter on computational methods that presents the basic principles on which most modern computer programs are developed. It introduces an example on rotor balancing and expands on the section on shock spectrum and isolation.
