## Preface to Vibration with Control PDF

Advance level vibration topics are presented here, including lumped mass and distributed mass systems in the context of the appropriate mathematics along with topics from control that are useful in vibration analysis, testing and design.

This text is intended for use in a second course in vibration, or a combined course in vibration and control.

It is also intended as a reference for the field of structural control and could be used as a text in structural control.

The control topics are introduced at the beginners’ level with no prerequisite knowledge in controls needed to read the book.

The text is an attempt to place vibration and control on a firm mathematical basis and connect the disciplines of vibration, linear algebra, matrix computations, control and applied functional analysis. Each chapter ends with notes on further references and suggests where more detailed accounts can be found.

In this way I hope to capture a “bigger picture” approach without producing an overly large book. The first chapter presents a quick introduction using single degree of freedom systems (second-order ordinary differential equations) to the following chapters,

Which extend these concepts to multiple degree of freedom systems (matrix theory and systems of ordinary differential equations) and distributed parameter systems (partial differential equations and boundary value problems). Numerical simulations and matrix computations are also presented through the use of MatlabTM.
