Developed from three decades’ worth of lecture notes which the author used to teach at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Advanced Structural Dynamics (PDF) presents a comprehensive treatment of structural dynamics and mechanical vibration. The chapters in this ebook are self-contained so that instructors can choose to be particular about which topics they teach. Written with an application-based focus, the textbook covers topics such as soil dynamics, gyroscope forces, earthquake engineering, and relevant numerical methods techniques that use MATLAB. Advanced topics such as the Hilbert transform and spatially periodic structures are also treated extensively. Complete enough for an introductory course yet rigorous enough for an advanced or graduate-level course, this textbook is also a helpful reference manual – even after the final exam – for practicing and professional engineers.
