Engineering Vibration 4th Edition by Daniel J. Inman offers traditional design-oriented topics, the introduction of modal analysis, and the use of MATLAB, Mathcad, or Mathematica. The author provides an unequaled combination of the study of conventional vibration with the use of vibration design, computation, analysis and testing in various engineering applications.

It is intended for use in one/two-semester introductory courses in vibration for undergraduates in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics. This text is also suitable for readers with an interest in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics.

Special-interest windows are placed throughout the text where prior or background information summaries are required. This helps remind students of essential information pertinent to the text material, so they don’t have to flip back to previous chapters or consult a reference text for formulas or other information. Author examines topics that reflect some of the recent advances in vibration technology, changes in ABET criteria and the increased importance of both engineering design and modal analysis.

In the Design for Vibration Suppression Chapter, students put vibration analysis into practice by learning how to use vibration theory to design systems, structures and devices. Use of computational codes throughout fully integrates modern software tools into the study of vibration, satisfying ABET criteria. To help students relate design and analysis, nearly every topic contains design-related examples or discussions.

Computational software packages are integrated the text material to provide students with skills required by industry. This also allows early introduction to nonlinear vibration. This text incorporates MATLAB, Engineering Vibration Toolbox, Mathematica, and Mathcad throughout to allow students to conduct and explore vibration analysis, “what if” studies, and design.

Toolbox offers professional quality computer analyses, including basics, introduction to modal analysis with actual experimental data files and finite elements. Students are challenged with over 65 computer problems including use of manufacture's design charts, measurement analysis, and matrix eigenvalue computing for frequencies and modes.

All computer codes have been updated to agree with the latest syntax changes made in MATLAB, Mathematica, and Mathcad. Fifty-four new problems have been added and 94 problems have been modified for clarity and numerical changes. Eight new figures have been added and three previous figures have been modified.
