Chapters are grouped according to subject matter. The first group discusses theory; the second considers instrumentation and measurements,and procedures for analyzing and testing systems subjected to shock and vibration. Vibration that is induced by ground motion and fluid flow is considered next; then methods of controlling shock and vibration; followed by chapters on packaging engineering to prevent equipment from being damaged in transit; on the theory and practice of equipment design; and on the effects of shock and vibration on humans. New material includes computer techniques for solving problems,new instrumentation based on microchip technology,advances in analysis of data and models,application of finite element methods,and test criteria and specifications.


Here is the classic work on shock and vibration—expanded and updated to incorporate the latest advances,theories,and materials—and the only book you'll ever need on the subject.

Written by a team of hands-on internationally recognized experts,HARRIS' SHOCK AND VIBRATION HANDBOOK logically covers three major subject areas:
* The basic theory of shock and vibration
* Measurement,testing,design,and control methodologies
* Practical applications of theory This new Fifth Edition has been completely revised to provide coverage of critical topics such as:
* Application of computers to shock and vibration problems
* Recent advances in the analysis of vibration data
* The use of composite materials
* High-intensity sound-induced vibration
* Protection againstinjuries from shock and vibration
* Design of equipment for shock and vibration environments
* And much more!

Invaluable to engineers specializing in mechanical,aeronatutical,acoustical,civil,electrical,and transportation engineering,HARRIS' SHOCK AND VIBRATION HANDBOOK is a valuable guide to the solution of shock and vibration problems.
