Advanced Structural Dynamics (PDF) is a comprehensive treatment of structural dynamics and mechanical vibration. It was developed from the author's lecture notes that he used to teach at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the course of three decades. Because each chapter in this ebook can stand on its own, educators have the flexibility to choose the specific topics that they want to cover with their classes. The textbook was written with an application-based focus, and it covers topics such as earthquake engineering, gyroscope forces, soil dynamics, and relevant numerical methods techniques that use MATLAB. In-depth coverage is also given to more advanced subjects, such as the Hilbert transform and structures with spatially periodic patterns. This textbook is not only comprehensive enough to be used for an introductory course but also rigorous enough to be used for an advanced or graduate-level course. Additionally, it is a helpful reference manual for practicing and professional engineers, even after the final exam has been taken.
NOTE: This product only comes with the PDF version of the ebook, which is titled Advanced Structural Dynamics. There are no access codes contained within.
