#### Additional product details

Fundamentals of Vibrations provides a comprehensive coverage of mechanical vibrations theory and applications. Suitable as a textbook for courses ranging from introductory to graduate level, it can also serve as a reference for practicing engineers. Written by a leading authority in the field, this volume features a clear and precise presentation of the material and is supported by an abundance of physical explanations, many worked-out examples, and numerous homework problems. The modern approach to vibrations emphasizes analytical and computational solutions that are enhanced by the use of MATLAB. The text covers single-degree-of-freedom systems, two-degree-of-freedom systems, elements of analytical dynamics, multi-degree-of-freedom systems, exact methods for distributed-parameter systems, approximate methods for distributed-parameter systems, including the finite element method, nonlinear oscillations, and random vibrations. Three appendices provide pertinent material from Fourier series, Laplace transformation, and linear algebra.
