An excellent comprehensive text - the author included introductory, intermediate and advanced material which would be appropriate for both students and seniors of mechanical engineering. It covers virtually all topics related to the mechanicah/ibration, presented in quite simple and easy to read manner. The list of the topics addressed in this book includes the very fundamentals of vibration, free vibration of single-degree-of-freedom systems, harmonically excited vibration, vibration under general forcing conditions, two- and mutidegree-of-freedom systems, determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes, vibration control, it's measurement and applications, continuous systems, various numerical integration methods in vibration analysis; Finite element method, mathematical relationships and material properties, deflection of plates and beams, matrices, Laplace transform; it also provides some introduction to MATLAB program.
