Applied Structural and Mechanical Vibrations: Theory, Methods and Measuring Instrumentation 2nd Edition, by Vittorio Ferrari and Paolo L. Gatti focuses on the mathematical principle and the practical elements of engineering vibrations evaluation and measurement, making it an invaluable reference for superior students and professionals working in the field.
The ideas of classical linear vibration theory are introduced along with vibration measurement, sign processing and random vibration for software to vibration problems in all areas of engineering, and not merely in civil and structural engineering. This book guides the practicing engineer within the performing of measurements and the interpretation of the results. Explicit attention is given to the dynamics of structures. The method of study is offered to use readily to many different fields.
The book is divided into two parts. Part one considers the speculation and methods of engineering vibrations so as of increasing complexity, from free- and forced-vibrations of single-diploma-of-freedom methods, multiple-degree-of-freedom techniques and continuous programs, to modal evaluation, stochastic processes and random vibrations – also including a variety of worked-out examples in every chapter.
Half two deals particularly with the measurement of vibrations in real-world applications, illustrating the main ideas concerned in the measurement process and offering pointers and suggestions on learn how to accomplish this activity by digital means. A complete description of the required hardware is provided.
Applied Structural and Mechanical Vibrations: Theory, Methods and Measuring Instrumentation 2nd Edition consists of new material on vibration isolation, a revised chapter on likelihood and statistics and new material on stochastic processes, digital filtering and digital sign processing. Technological facets have been brought up to date with the most recent developments within the field, including details on the newest sensors made in MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) silicon-based technology.
