Description

From theory and fundamentals to the latest advances in computational and


experimental modal analysis, this is the definitive, updated reference on
structural dynamics.

This edition updates Professor Craig's classic introduction to structural dynamics,


which has been an invaluable resource for practicing engineers and a textbook for
undergraduate and graduate courses in vibrations and/or structural dynamics. Along
with comprehensive coverage of structural dynamics fundamentals, finite-element-
based computational methods, and dynamic testing methods, this Second Edition
includes new and expanded coverage of computational methods, as well as
introductions to more advanced topics, including experimental modal analysis and
"active structures." With a systematic approach, it presents solution techniques
that apply to various engineering disciplines. It discusses single degree-of-
freedom (SDOF) systems, multiple degrees-of-freedom (MDOF) systems, and continuous
systems in depth; and includes numeric evaluation of modes and frequency of MDOF
systems; direct integration methods for dynamic response of SDOF systems and MDOF
systems; and component mode synthesis.

Numerous illustrative examples help engineers apply the techniques and methods to
challenges they face in the real world. MATLAB(r) is extensively used throughout
the book, and many of the .m-files are made available on the book's Web site.
Fundamentals of Structural Dynamics, Second Edition is an indispensable reference
and "refresher course" for engineering professionals; and a textbook for seniors or
graduate students in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, engineering
mechanics, or aerospace engineering.
