An Introduction to Shock & Vibration Response Spectra
This comprehensive 287 page handbook has been written to help engineers understand the complex and fascinating topic of shock and vibration analysis.
It’s author, leading vibration specialist Tom Irvine, has crafted this handbook to combine the highly theoretical approach found in several shock and vibration response publications with wonderful examples that demonstrate the practical applicability of those theories.
Tom’s extensive experience and passion for shock and vibration analysis makes this a great resource for recently graduated students, engineers with a modicum of testing experience, and experienced shock and vibration professionals looking to confirm their thinking.
Tom wandered into the specialty of vibration serendipitously and found that vibration’s quirky traits were well-suited to his unconventional personality. After earning his B.S. and M.S degrees in engineering science Tom has worked in the field of shock and vibration for over 30 years.
He has posted hundreds of tutorial and software programs at his Vibrationdata website, covering shock, vibration, acoustics, structural dynamics, and signal processing. He has written several blog articles in collaboration with Mide, and we are very proud and excited to to be associated with this latest endeavor of Tom's, and we hope you will find it as beneficial as we do.
