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.
