For undergraduate courses in Vibration Engineering.
Retaining the style of its previous editions, this text presents the theory, computational aspects, and applications of vibrations in as simple a manner as possible. With an emphasis on computer techniques of analysis, it gives expanded explanations of the fundamentals, focusing on physical significance and interpretation that build upon students' previous experience. Each self-contained topic fully explains all concepts and presents the derivations with complete details. Numerous examples and problems illustrate principles and concepts.

“This is a very comprehensive text that includes introductory, intermediate, and advanced material appropriate for mechanical engineering seniors and graduate students.” — Ara Arabyan, University of Arizona
“Comprehensive coverage of virtually all vibration related topics.” — Ara Arabyan, University of Arizona
“The book covers all the relevant topics of vibration analysis. The material is presented in a simple manner, easy to read, follow and understand. Moreover, illustrations are simple, yet complete and serve well the presented material and solution strategy and methodology.” — Faissal A. Moslehy, University of Central Florida
“The book presents a comprehensive coverage of mechanical vibration. It is a very resourceful textbook as well as a “must have” reference.” — Faissal A. Moslehy, University of Central Florida
“Presentation of a wide range of vibration topics, including experimental modal analysis, machine monitoring, nonlinear and random vibration, which are normally taught at the graduate level. This makes the book a viable reference for practicing engineers as well.” — Faissal A. Moslehy, University of Central Florida
“I absolutely love this text book. This is one of my favorites Vibrations book. I must congratulate the author for doing such a great job in the planning, organization, writing, editing and continuous improvement of the book.” — Mohen Rao, Michigan Tech
“The chapters are excellently written and presented. What I like about this text is that it includes all the steps in arriving an equation or conclusion and the solutions to the example problems are very detailed.” — Amir Rezael, California State Polytechnic University
While presenting theory, computational aspects, and applications of vibrations in as simple a manner as possible, this book serves as an introduction to the subject of vibration engineering. As in previous editions, Rao emphasizes computer techniques of analysis. The third edition features expanded explanations of the fundamentals, emphasizing physical significance and interpretation that build upon previous experience in mechanics.Supplements
