    Dynamics and Control of Structures – A Modal Approach

    $129.00 $119.00

    This book addresses problems in structural dynamics and control encountered in such applications as aerospace structures, robotics, earthquake-damage prevention, and active noise suppression. The rapid developments of new technologies and computer power have made it possible to formulate and solve engineering problems that seemed unapproachable only a few years ago.

    Engineering Applications of Correlation and Spectral Analysis

    $165.00 $146.00

    Expanded to cover more advanced application where statistical properties of data can be non stationary, and the physical systems nonlinear as opposed to only linear. Stresses the practical use and interpretation of analyzed data to solve problems. Special attention is given to bias and random errors involved in desired estimates and the proper interpretation of results from specific applications. Includes numerous case studies concerned with dynamic problems which can occur in a variety of fields.

    Fundamentals of Structural Dynamics, 2nd Ed

    $140.00 $125.00

    Structural dynamics is an area that covers experimental, analytical, and computational methods for determining the response of structures to dynamic environments. Structural dynamics covers the theory of engineering vibration, with an emphasis on how to obtain models of real structures by finite-element-based computational techniques. It also emphasizes topics like mode superposition and frequency response, topics that play a significant role in experimental modal analysis. SD is closely related to “mechanical vibrations” textbooks with titles like Vibrations, Engineering Vibrations, and civil engineering type “structural dynamics” textbooks.

    Health Monitoring of Structural Materials and Components: Methods with Applications

    $140.00 $125.00

    The first complete introduction to health monitoring, encapsulating both technical information and practical case studies spanning the breadth of the subject. Written by a highly-respected figure in structural health monitoring, this book provides readers with the technical skills and practical understanding required to solve new problems encountered in the emerging field of health monitoring. The book presents a suite of methods and applications in loads identification (usage monitoring), in-situ damage identification (diagnostics), and damage and performance prediction (prognostics). Concepts in modelling, measurements, and data analysis are applied through real-world case studies to identify loading, assess damage, and predict the performance of structural components, as well as examine engine components, automotive accessories, aircraft parts, spacecraft components, civil structures and defence system components.

    Introduction to Experimental Nonlinear Dynamics

    $75.00

    “A Case Study in Mechanical Vibration Nonlinear behavior can be found in such highly disparate areas as population biology and aircraft wing flutter. Largely because of this extensive reach, nonlinear dynamics and chaos have become very active fields of study and research. This book uses an extended case study – an experiment in mechanical vibration – to introduce and explore the subject of nonlinear behavior and chaos.”

    Modal Analysis Theory and Testing

    $115.00

    This book (part A and B) attempts to give an overview of primarily the experimental approach to modal analysis. Since modal analysis is a technique that investigates and estimates parameters describing the dynamic behaviour of a system, it has wide range of application fields; all linear dynamics systems whose inputs and outputs can be registered, can be investigated by modal analysis. Although this technique is not new, primarily the advances in digital computers caused a dramatic increase of the practical possibilities of modal analysis

    Multimedia Modal Handbook

    $775.00 $750.00

    The MODAL HANDBOOK is a modal test/analysis reference guide in an easy-to-use multimedia package. It brings all the important issues of experimental modal testing to a very simple level of explanation and understanding. The interface allows the modal test engineer/technician to quickly access information pertinent to running modal tests. By using either pull-down menus, hot spots or buttons on the screen, navigation to pertinent information is a mouse click away. Simple pictures are used to explain complex theoretical concepts to take away the mystery of modal analysis and allow just about anyone to understand modal analysis and testing/extraction procedures.

    Nonlinear Systems Techniques and Applications

    $156.00 $148.00

    This book provides the most practical techniques currently available for analyzing and identifying nonlinear systems from random data measured at the input and output points of the nonlinear systems. These new techniques require only one-dimensional spectral functions that are much simpler to compute and apply than previous nonlinear procedures. The new results show when and how to replace a wide class of single-input/single-output nonlinear models with simpler equivalent multiple-input/single-output linear models. While other techniques are usually restricted to Gaussian data, the new techniques developed here apply to data with arbitrary probability, correlation, and spectral properties.

    Structural Analysis and Behavior

    This text presents the methods of structural analysis with some emphasis on the physical behavior of structures.  Classical methods of analysis provide useful means of understanding the concepts and the behavior of structures.  Modern matrix methods, on the other hand, present systematic general solutions procedures. Therefore, an attempt has been made to strike a balance between the classical and the modern methods.  The direct stiffness method has emerged as the most common method of solution because of its generality and east of programming.  This is the matrix method used throughout the book..  However, an introduction to the flexibility method is presented in Chapter 13.

    Structural Dynamics @ 2000: Current Status and Future Directions

    $105.00 $97.00

    In April of 1999, a group of some 40 structural dynamicists assembled at Los Alamos for a week long debate on a wide range of issues. This event became known as “SD2000”. The objectives were to conduct a review of the subject and to make an assessment of where we are, where we need to be and how to get there. This book is a summary of the issues at SD2000 and to provide a guide to current and future practitioners of the subject and it's applications areas.
