Handbook Of Mechanical Vibrations : Types , Testing , Control & Analysis
Vibration refers to mechanical oscillations about an equilibrium point. The oscillations may be periodic such as the motion of a pendulum or random such as the movement of a tire on a gravel road. Vibration is occasionally “desirable”. More often, vibration is undesirable, wasting energy and creating unwanted sound – noise. For example, the vibrational motions of engines, electric motors, or any mechanical device in operation are typically unwanted. Careful designs usually minimize unwanted vibrations. The study of sound and vibration is closely related. Sound, or “pressure waves” are generated by vibrating structures; these pressure waves can also induce the vibration of structures. Hence, when trying to reduce noise it is often a problem in trying to reduce vibration. This handbook provides a model, derived from non-linear dynamics of how psychoanalysis works. Non-linear dynamics is a recently developed general study of how systems that are not very simple change over time. Aspects of the theory are sometimes referred to as chaos theory, complexity theory and fractal geometry. This is reference handbook that deals with mechanical vibrations, types, testing, control and analysis, essential reading for students and teachers of physics and engineering.
