Offers designers and users of mechanical systems an overview of structural stiffness and damping and their critical roles in mechanical design. The text assesses the relationship between stiffness and damping parameters in mechanical systems and structural materials. An accompanying disk contains detailed analyses of stiffness- and damping-critical systems.
"Stiffness and Damping in Mechanical Design is well written and would make an excellent reference book and a textbook for review and continuing education courses on the subject." ---Applied Mechanics Review ." . .a very detailed and comprehensive discussion of stiffness and damping in structures and structural elements. . ..a great addition to the reference library of any practicing structural or design engineer." ---AIAA Journal
