Download Analysis of Dynamic Effects on Engineering Structures – Miroslav Bata, Vaclav Plachy pdf
This book aims to bring structural dynamics as close as possible to the needs of practical workers, particularly engineers in design offices and on sites. The first chapter explains the subject matter and the purpose of structural dynamics, discusses coordinate systems and degrees of freedom, and contains definitions of stiffness and flexibility matrices. The second chapter summarizes the basic relations governing the natural vibration of systems with a single degree of freedom, with a finite number of degrees of freedom and with continuously distributed mass. The third chapter is dedicated to the exciting forces (deterministic or random) acting on structures, the principles of mathematical statistics, the theory of stochastic processes, and explains how the exciting forces are determined by calculation and experiment. The analysis of forced vibration of systems with a single degree of freedom, with a finite number of degrees of freedom, and with continuously distributed mass, forms the content of the fourth chapter, in which vibration generated by a deterministic force, and forced vibration of a random character are explained.
