Understanding and controlling vibration is critical for reducing noise, improving work environments and product quality, and increasing the useful life of industrial machinery and other mechanical systems. Computer-based modeling and analytical tools provide fast, accurate, and efficient means of designing and controlling a system for improved vibratory and, subsequently, acoustic performance. Computer Techniques in Vibration provides an overview as well as a detailed account and application of the various tools and techniques available for modeling and simulating vibrations.
Drawn from the immensely popular Vibration and Shock Handbook, each expertly crafted chapter of this book includes convenient summary windows, tables, graphs, and lists to provide ready access to the important concepts and results. Working systematically from general principles to specific applications, the coverage spans from numerical techniques, modeling, and software tools to analysis of flexibly supported multibody systems, finite element applications, vibration signal analysis, fast Fourier transform (FFT), and wavelet techniques and applications. MATLAB® toolboxes and other widely available software packages feature prominently in the discussion, accompanied by numerous examples, sample outputs, and a case study.
Instead of wading through heavy volumes or software manuals for the techniques you need, find a ready collection of eminently practical tools in Computer Techniques in Vibration.
