An Introduction to Vibrations is an easy to follow, introductory textbook on vibrations. The basics of vibrations are covered in depth providing students with a solid foundation for further study. It begins with addressing the transition from dynamics to vibration, and the analysis and vibration of single degree of freedom systems, before covering damping and continuous systems. Finite elements and the inerter are also covered, and finally the Analysis of Experimental Data, and other topics in vibration (including flow induced vibrations and self-excited oscillations in rail vehicles) are discussed.
An Introduction to Vibrations includes end of chapter exercises and is accompanied by a website hosting a solution manual and animations. It is an ideal textbook for a single term/one semester undergraduate course on vibrations.
