Overview

This book presents an introduction to the mathematical basis of finite element analysis as applied to vibrating systems. Finite element analysis is a technique which is very important in modelling the response of structures to dynamic loads and is widely used in aeronautical, civil and mechanical engineering as well as naval architecture. The book has been written in a modular style to make it suitable for use in courses of varying length and level.
