Summary: In this second edition of Principles of Vibration, Benson H. Tongue takes a refreshingly informal approach to the understanding and analysis of vibration problems. His student-friendly style creates a sense of ''one-on-one'' communication to which students respond with enthusiasm, declaring thatthe text is enjoyable, informative, and even ''good bedtime reading.'' The text material can be used in a first vibrations course and in advanced undergraduate/beginning graduate courses. Some more familiarity with linear algebra, elementary deformable bodies, and beginning dynamics is assumed. Tongueprovides a basic understanding of the principles of vibrations, presenting the core ideas and theories that define the field. Starting with classical material--single-degree-of-freedom systems--he branches out into modern topics, emphasizing multiple-degree-of-freedom systems. Principles ofVibration, Second Edition is an ideal text for senior undergraduates and graduate students in mechanical, civil, and aeronautical engineering departments. Features BL Features a student-centric presentation that emphasizes the understanding of basic concepts BL Provides modal analysis and linear algebra tools to solve vibration problems BL Contains general solution techniques and specific approaches using MATLABRG BL Includes a wide array of problems from various disciplines BL Contains 126 completely new homework problems, 100 modified problems, and 13 new examples BL Contains a unique chapter on ''Seat-of-the-Pants'' engineering, giving novices the ''tricks of the trade'' that provide fast and accurate estimations of the real solution to a problem less
