SUMMARY

While retaining much material covered in classical texts on structural dynamics and vibrations, this text emphasizes the mathematical modelling of structures and the methods for solving structural dynamics problems with a digital computer. Using a systematic approach, it thoroughly reviews the basic principles of structural dynamics, presenting solution techniques that apply to various engineering disciplines. The book specifically features: An extensive introduction to numerical techniques for computing natural frequencies and mode shapes and for computing transient responseA systematic introduction to the use of finite elements in structural dynamics analysisAn application of complex frequency response representations for the response of single and multiple-degree-of-freedom systemsA complete exposition of both the mode-displacement and mode-acceleration versions of mode-superposition for computing dynamic responseAn introduction to practical methods of component mode synthesis for dynamic analysisAn introduction of an instructional matrix manipulation and finite element computer code, ISMIS (interactive Structures and Matrix Interpretive System) for solving structural dynamics problems.Civil, aerospace and mechanical engineers will find the book amply illustrated with numerous worked-out examples tailored to their specific fields. Upon completion of the book they will be able to read and apply the technical literature on this topic, and use structural dynamics computer programs intelligently.Roy R. Craig is the author of 'Structural Dynamics: An Introduction to Computer Methods', published 1981 under ISBN 9780471044994 and ISBN 0471044997.
