Structural dynamics has become a crucial parameter for meeting performance requirements in fields as varied as automotive, aeronautics, space and defense. This book focuses on the behavior of structures subjected to a vibrational or shock environment. It takes a systematic approach to the basic concepts in order to enhance the readerís understanding and to allow industrial structures to be covered with the necessary degree of depth. The developments are explained with a minimum of mathematics and are frequently illustrated with simple examples, while numerous industry case studies are also provided.
