This major textbook provides comprehensive coverage of the analytical tools required to determine the dynamic response of structures. The topics covered include: formulation of the equations of motion for single- as well as multi-degree-of-freedom discrete systems using the principles of both vector mechanics and analytical mechanics; free vibration response; determination of frequencies and mode shapes; forced vibration response to harmonic and general forcing functions; dynamic analysis of continuous systems;and wave propagation analysis. The key assets of the book include comprehensive coverage of both the traditional and state-of-the-art numerical techniques of response analysis, such as the analysis by numerical integration of the equations of motion and analysis through frequency domain. The large number of illustrative examples and exercise problems are of great assistance in improving clarity and enhancing reader comprehension. The text aims to benefit students and engineers in the civil, mechanical, and aerospace sectors.The book should be equally helpful to persons working in the field of civil, mechanical or aerospace engineering. ... No special mathematical background is required of the reader, except for a basic knowledge of college algebra and calculus and engineering mechanics. ... Part I consisting of Chapters 2 through 4 deals with the formulation of equations of motion of discrete parameter ...
