Principles of Vibration and Soundby Thomas D. Rossing, Neville H. Fletcher
Pub. Date: 12/28/1994
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, LLC
This book discussed the physics of mechanical vibrating systems, emphasizing normal modes of vibration. Beginning with the basics of free and forced motion of a simple harmonic oscillator (with electrical analogs indicated where appropriate), it goes on to discuss vibrations in one-dimensional systems, such as strings and bars, and two-dimensional systems, such as membranes and plates.
