Vibration damping, control, and design.


Vibration damping, control, and design.

Ed. by Clarence W. de Silva.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


634 pages



Mechanical engineering series


With case studies and examples, the contributors of these articles work systematically from theory to applications so practitioners as well as students can produce mechanical engineering projects with better product quality and more economical operation. The contributors include summaries for each topic so readers can quickly find what they need to know about design for vibration damping and control, damping theory, experimental techniques, structure and equipment isolation, structural dynamic modification and sensitivity analysis, fluid-induced vibration, instrumentation, and statistical energy analysis. Articles on acoustics cover sources of noise, sound levels and decibels, hearing and psychological effects, noise control criteria and regulations (including design of acoustic absorption) and building in reactive mufflers. Some of the applications that deserve a chapter all to themselves include vibration in rotating machinery, regenerative chatter in machine tools, and helicopter rotor tuning. The illustrations are very clear and helpful.
