Introduction to Engineering Vibrations is a new senior undergraduate level textbook intended for use in introductory courses in engineering vibrations taught primarily out of mechanical and aerospace engineering departments. Author Nicolae Lobontiu takes a classical approach to the topic while introducing coverage of topics not yet found in competing vibrations texts, including the increasingly important field of Microsystems. The book focuses on model-based approaches for vibration analysis and design and includes numerous MATLAB and Simulink examples. Hundreds of fully-worked examples aid studentsa understanding of the material. The book includes extensive student and instructor support in the form of advanced web-based chapters extending the coverage of topics in the book, solutions manual, PowerPoint lecture slides, downloadable MATLAB code for all worked examples, and online animations illustrating engineering vibration concepts. An e-text version provides an immersive student learning environment by linking text discussions directly to animations, short video clips, and Matlab files, to offer the most practical and realistic introductory vibrations text on the market. Emphasis on the basics of mechanical vibrations with extensions provided in companion (on-line) chapters; Structured and self-contained material starting from simple concepts and modeling tools to more complex ones; Balanced coverage of the main mechanical vibration topics; Inclusion of applications/examples taken from the areas of compliant mechanisms and micro systems; Introduction of new topics (compared to existing texts) such as: lumped-parameter models of compliant mechanical systems and equivalence to rigid-body dynamics micro systems; lumped-parameter models of micro systems; mechanical vibrations of planar linkages; actuation/sensing of mechanical vibrations Focus on model-based approaches for mechanical vibration analysis and design; Several modeling procedures allowing the reader the flexibility of selecting the preferred tool; Minimization of the theoretical exposition in tandem with numerous fully-solved examples and proposed end-of-chapter problems; Connectivity between solved examples and end-of-chapter problems; MATLAB and Simulink solutions to examples; Ancillary material consisting of web-based chapters extending the printed-book topical coverage, a project and its suggested solution, downloadable MATLAB code for all solved examples, as well as a database with animation files illustrating book concepts and examples, particularly those covering the compliant mechanisms and micro systems areas.The book focuses on model-based approaches for vibration analysis and design and includes numerous MATLAB and Simulink examples. Hundreds of fully-worked examples aid studentsa understanding of the material.
