Dynamics and Vibration: An Introduction is a textbook to support Dynamics and Vibration modules across a wide range of undergraduate engineering courses from first year to final year including civil, mechanical, aerospace and medical engineering. The unique DAMA software, included as a free online resource, generates computer simulations that provide students with a new way to visualise the motion of mechanisms and vibrating systems. By varying the input and output parameters of the simulations themselves, students can clearly see and understand the effects of system changes.

Dynamics and Vibration: An Introduction is well structured and easy to understand, with a wealth of examples and tutorial questions. It offers lecutres and student of Dynamics and Vibration a practical and concise resource specifically for their needs.

Topics covered include:

• motion of particles and rigid bodies with and without reference to masses and forces (Kinematics and Kinetics) including motion of wheels, gears, linkages and mechanisms;
• balancing of machines including rotating masses and multi–cylinder engines;
• free and forced vibration of a single degree of freedom (mass, a spring and a damper) including damped, damped systems and vibration isolators;
• free and forced vibration of two–degree of freedom systems including vibration of bars and lateral vibration absorbers;
• vibration of continuous systems including lateral vibration of cables, longitudinal vibration of bars and lateral vibration of beams using analytical solution and Finite Element Method.
