The most up-to-date collection of frequency equations and forms of free vibrations for beams, arches, and frames FORMULAS FOR STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS Tables, Graphs, and Solutions This reference book is devoted to determination of frequencies and forms of free vibrations for beams, arches, and frames. This book provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date reference of known solutions of such problems. The material presented in the book is compiled from monographs, handbooks, and numerous journals. This reference book has been written for specialists in the field of dynamics of deformable systems, and is intended for practical use during design, testing, or scientific research. This book is also useful for instructors, graduate, and postgraduate students dealing with modern civil, mechanical, transportation, acoustical, aeronautical, shipbuilding, aircraft, robotics engineering, and so on. Formulas for Structural Dynamics features: *Considerable scope: this is the most complete up-to-date collection of frequency equations and forms of free vibrations for beams, arches, and frames that has ever been published *About 500 frequency problems most commonly encountered in practical engineering: problems selection is based on many years experience of the authors in the field of structural dynamics. *Quick-access organization: each chapter is a quick reference to a well-defined topic. Destined to be a classic reference, experts Igor A. Karnovsky and Olga I. Lebed's Formulas for Structural Dynamics deserves a place of honor on your desk. It's a book for those who want to find answers while others are still scratching their heads. Igor A. Karnovsky has an M.A. in Civil Engineering (1962, Ukraine) Ph.D. in Structural Mechanics (1970, Ukraine) Igor A. Karnovsky is a specialist in structural mechanics, theory of vibration, and optimal control of vibrations.
