Description

Chapter 1. Mechanical systems and equilibrium of forces Chapter 2. Principle of virtual work and Lagrange’s equations Chapter 3. Hamilton’s Principle and Lagrange’s equations of unconstrained systems Chapter 4. Constrained systems and Lagrange’s undetermined multipliers Chapter 5. Autonomous oscillators Chapter 6. Multi-degree-of-freedom systems: natural modes of vibration Chapter 7. Forced vibration: response to transient excitations Chapter 8. Spectral analysis of deterministic time signals Chapter 9. Spectral analysis of forced vibrations

Key Features

  • Presents the general methods that provide a unified framework to model mathematically mechanical systems of interest to the engineer, analyzing the response of these systems
  • Focuses on linear problems, but includes some aspects of non-linear configuration
  • Comprehensive coverage of mathematical techniques used to perform computer-based analytical studies and numerical simulations
  • Discusses the mathematical techniques used to perform analytical studies and numerical simulations on the computer

Readership

Mechanical engineers and designers, and specialists in damage mechanics, fluid-structure interaction, vibration effects and applied mechanics

Reviews

‘For this is not just a translation; much has been added, refined and polished, to make this book an excellent addition to anyone’s bookshelf, whose interests lie in Dynamics, Vibrations, or Fluid Structure Interactions.’ Michael Païdoussis, Emeritus Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, McGill University, Canada, in the Journal of Fluids and Structures, 2004
