This comprehsive text is intended for use on one- or two-term introductory courses in vibrations taught to mechanical, aerospace, engineering mechanics, and civil engineering undergraduates. The work emphasizes design and extends the discussion of design beyond handbook solutions for component sizing to include the assumptions underlying the handbook solutions. Symbolic processing is introduced for those readers who want to extend their understanding of the fundamentals of vibration analysis. The text also includes historical references so that students will understand how vibration theories developed. Drill exercises have been added to the introductory chapters to help students understand basic concepts before proceeding to solve more complex problems requiring numerical results, and a new appendix has been added with tables covering mass, damping and stiffness properties of engineering materials.This comprehsive text is intended for use on one- or two-term introductory courses in vibrations taught to mechanical, aerospace, engineering mechanics, and civil engineering undergraduates.
