Vibration testing is used to analyze the integrity of systems in a variety of applications that range from circuit boards and aircraft to steam turbines and home appliances. Conducting these tests in either the field or laboratory involves the use of data analyzers, instruments, and vibration exciters. The use of equipment and interpretation of test results require considerable understanding of vibration phenomena as well as analysis and experimental concepts. Consequently, the user of this equipment can be the dominant influence on the quality of test results. Vibration Testing: Theory and Practice is a step-by-step guide that shows how to obtain meaningful experimental results via the proper use of modern instrumentation, vibration exciters, and signal-processing equipment, with particular emphasis on how different types of signals are processed with a frequency analyzer. Also included are techniques for reading test results effectively and a discussion of how the test system’s own dynamics can influence test results. Using practical lessons to introduce the theoretical aspects of vibration testing, the book covers all basic concepts and principles underlying dynamic testing, explains how current instruments and methods operate within the dynamic environment, and describes their behavior in a number of commonly encountered field and laboratory test situations. Vibration Testing: Theory and Practice deals with a wide range of product and production testing involving vibration, acoustics, and noise problems in the vibration-testing environment, whether relating to industrial applications or experimental work. It is an invaluable resource for graduate students, researchers, and practicing engineers in aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineering.

Strength of materials is that branch of engineering concerned with the deformation and disruption of solids when forces other than changes in position or equilibrium are acting upon them. The development of our understanding of the strength of materials has enabled engineers to establish the forces which can safely be imposed on structure or components, or to choose materials appropriate to the necessary dimensions of structures and components which have to withstand given loads without suffering effects deleterious to their proper functioning. This excellent historical survey of the strength of materials with many references to the theories of elasticity and structures is based on an extensive series of lectures delivered by the author at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California. Timoshenko explores the early roots of the discipline from the great monuments and pyramids of ancient Egypt through the temples, roads, and fortifications of ancient Greece and Rome. The author fixes the formal beginning of the modern science of the strength of materials with the publications of Galileo's book, "Two Sciences," and traces the rise and development as well as industrial and commercial applications of the fledgling science from the seventeenth century through the twentieth century. Timoshenko fleshes out the bare bones of mathematical theory with lucid demonstrations of important equations and brief biographies of highly influential mathematicians, including: Euler, Lagrange, Navier, Thomas Young, Saint-Venant, Franz Neumann, Maxwell, Kelvin, Rayleigh, Klein, Prandtl, and many others. These theories, equations, and biographies are further enhanced by clear discussions of the development of engineering and engineering education in Italy, France, Germany, England, and elsewhere. 245 figures.
