1 Equivalent Single-Degree-of-Freedom System and Free Vibration

The course on Mechanical Vibration is an important part of the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate curriculum. It is necessary for the development and the performance of many modern engineering products: automobiles, jet engines, rockets, bridges, electric motors, electric generators, and so on. Whenever a mechanical system contains storage elements for kinetic and potential energies, there will be vibration. The vibration of a mechanical system is a continual exchange between kinetic and potential energies. The vibration level is reduced by the presence of energy dissipation elements in the system. The problem of vibration is further accentuated because of the presence of time-varying ...
