About this book
This text is an advancement of the theory of vibration protection of mechanical systems with lumped and distributed parameters. The book offers various concepts and methods of solving vibration protection problems, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different methods, and the fields of their effective applications.
Fundamental approaches of vibration protection, which are considered in this book, are the passive, parametric and optimal active vibration protection. The passive vibration protection is based on vibration isolation, vibration damping and dynamic absorbers. Parametric vibration protection theory is based on the Shchipanov-Luzin invariance principle. Optimal active vibration protection theory is based on the Pontryagin principle and the Krein moment method.
The book also contains special topics such as suppression of vibrations at the source of their occurrence and the harmful influence of vibrations on humans.
Numerous examples, which illustrate the theoretical ideas of each chapter, are included.
This book is intended for graduate students and engineers. It is assumed that a reader has working knowledge of theory of vibrations, differential equations, and complex analysis.
