Hoboken: Wiley, 2007. — 398 p. — ISBN 978-0470-051738-3.The subject of vibrations is of fundamental importance inengineering and technology. Discrete modelling is sufficient tounderstand the dynamics of many vibrating systems; however a largenumber of vibration phenomena are far more easily understood whenmodelled as continuous systems. The theory of vibrations incontinuous systems is crucial to the understanding of engineeringproblems in areas as diverse as automotive brakes, overheadtransmission lines, liquid filled tanks, ultrasonic testing or roomacoustics. Starting from an elementary level, Vibrations and Waves inContinuous Mechanical Systems helps develop a comprehensiveunderstanding of the theory of these systems and the tools withwhich to analyse them, before progressing to more advancedtopics. • Presents dynamics and analysis techniques for a wide range ofcontinuous systems including strings, bars, beams, membranes,plates, fluids and elastic bodies in one, two and threedimensions. • Covers special topics such as the interaction of discrete andcontinuous systems, vibrations in translating media, and soundemission from vibrating surfaces, among others. • Develops the reader’s understanding by progressing fromvery simple results to more complex analysis without skipping thekey steps in the derivations. • Offers a number of new topics and exercises that form essentialsteppingstones to the present level of research in the field. • Includes exercises at the end of the chapters based on both theacademic and practical experience of the authors. Vibrations and Waves in Continuous Mechanical Systemsprovides a first course on the vibrations of continuous systemsthat will be suitable for students of continuous system dynamics,at senior undergraduate and graduate levels, in mechanical, civiland aerospace engineering. It will also appeal to researchersdeveloping theory and analysis within the field.
