Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis, 5-Volume Set, 2nd Edition (184821121X) cover image
This important five-volume series has been written with both the professional engineer and the academic in mind. Cristian Lalanne explores every aspect of vibration and shock, two fundamental and extremely significant areas of mechanical engineering, from both a theoretical and practical point of view. As all products need to be designed to withstand the environmental conditions to which they are likely to be subjected, prototypes must be verified by calculation and undergo laboratory tests to meet national and international standards. The concept of tailoring the product to its environment has developed gradually. Nowadays, from the very start of a design project through to the standards specifications and testing procedures on the prototype, the real environment in which the product will function is taken into account. The five volumes of Mechanical Vibration and Shock Analysis cover all the necessary issues in this area of mechanical engineering. The theoretical analyses are placed in the context of both the real world and the laboratory, which is essential for the development of specifications.
