Mechanical Vibrations – Singiresu S. Rao – 4th Edition


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. 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.

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.
