About the Book

Written specifically for the students of Mechanical Engineering, "Mechanical Vibrations" is a succinctly written textbook. Without being verbose, the textbook delves into all concepts related to the subject and deals with them in a laconic manner. Concepts such as Freedom Systems, Vibration Measurement and Transient Vibrations have been treated well for the student to get profounder knowledge in the subject.

Salient Features

• A new chapter on "Basics of Sound and Noise" has been added which will be helpful to understand sound intensity, pressure and power besides also providing an in-depth understanding of sound and noise strategy and control.
• Concepts such as Natural Frequency, Damping Ratio, Logarithmic Decrement, Lagrange's Equations and Laplace Transformation among others have been applied in various in-text examples to accentuate the topic at hand and also provide the learners with practice to further their understanding.
• Learning Objectives, aptly placed figures and examples (close to 500) and chapter-end questions (close to 300) embellish the process of understanding of each concept of the text.
