Vibration and Vibration Control

  • John E. K. Foreman


Vibration in machinery and structures is caused by the disturbing forces from, for example, reciprocating masses, unbalanced rotating masses, variable fluid pressure in hydraulic systems, turbulent wind loadings, wave action on structures, ground effects on vehicles, etc. Frequently the disturbing forces can be removed or balanced; if not, their harmful effects can be reduced by proper design of the parts and their mountings.
