Description

Structural Dynamics: Concepts and Applications focuses on dynamic problems in mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering through the equations of motion. The text explains structural response from dynamic loads and the modeling and calculation of dynamic responses in structural systems. A range of applications is included, from various engineering disciplines. Coverage progresses consistently from basic to advanced, with emphasis placed on analytical methods and numerical solution techniques. Stress analysis is discussed, and MATLAB applications are integrated throughout. A solutions manual and figure slides for classroom projection are available for instructors.
