Proceedings of the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, November 16-21, 1997, Dallas, Texas. Collection of 22 full-length, peer-reviewed technical papers. Eleven papers discuss the following topics: Vibration Control Via Active/ Passive Damping Methods: active and passive constrained layered damping, combination of conventional damping and confined vibrations, smart materials implementations including piezoceramics and magnetoreological fluids and active control techniques (e.g., modal methods and predictive control). Eleven additional papers on Nonlinear Dynamics and Scholastic Mechanics discuss current research issues relating to the fundamental, applied, analytical, computational and experimental aspects of nonlinear systems, stochastic dynamics, and stochastic mechanics. By: W.W. Clark, W.C. Xie, D. Allaei, S. Namachchivaya and O.M. O'Reilly

Editorial Reviews

The results of two symposia. The first, represented by 11 papers, present current analytical, numerical, and experimental results in all aspects of passive, active, hybrid, and semi-active damping methods applied to controlling structural vibrations in engineering applications. The topics include constrained layer damping, combining conventional damping and confined vibrations, and smart-material implementations including piezoceramics and magneto-rheological fluids. The other, with another 11 papers, addresses a number of topics related to fundamental, applied, analytical, computational, and experimental aspects of nonlinear systems, stochastic dynamics, and stochastic mechanics. Among them are the relative kinematics of multibody contacts, coupled oscillations of spherical gas bubbles, and nonlinear phenomena in a stochastically excited dynamic system. Reproduced from typescripts. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
