ENGINEERING PRINICPLES OF MECHANICAL VIBRATION is a textbook that is designed for use in senior level undergraduate and introductory and intermediate level graduate courses in mechanical vibration. The textbook assumes that students have a fundamental understanding of rigid body dynamics and ordinary differential equations. Engineering Principles of Mechanical Vibration is an applications oriented vibration textbook that contains complete developments of the equations associated with the many vibration principles discussed in the textbook. The textbook presents complete developments of solution techniques for ordinary and partial differential equations associated with lumped-parameter single-degree-of-freedom and multi-degree-of-freedom vibration systems and basic continuous vibration systems. It discusses principles associated with periodic, complex periodic, non-periodic, transient, and random vibration excitation and presents information related to vibration measurements and digital processing of vibration signals.
If you use one of Kobo's free reading apps you won't need to worry about download options most of the time. Your Kobo reading app can easily add Kobo Store books to your library for a seamless reading experience.
Download options matter when:
You want to read your book on an eReader other than the Kobo eReader (see here for a list of supported eReaders).
The book you want is only available as an Adobe DRM PDF.
In both of these cases you will need to:
Download a copy of your book to your computer.
Open the book using a free application called Adobe Digital Editions.
You can also use Digital Editions to transfer the book to your eReader. See here for more information on Digital Editions.
You can read this item on your computer using our free Kobo Desktop Application. This application lets you read, manage your library of eBooks, and even shop for new ones. Check out our demo for more information!
