Synopses & Reviews
The classic reference on shock and vibration, fully updated with the latest advances in the field
Written by a team of internationally recognized experts, this comprehensive resource provides all the information you need to design, analyze, install, and maintain systems subject to mechanical shock and vibration. The book covers theory, instrumentation, measurement, testing, control methodologies, and practical applications.
Harris' Shock and Vibration Handbook, Sixth Edition, has been extensively revised to include innovative techniques and technologies, such as the use of waveform replication, wavelets, and temporal moments. Learn how to successfully apply theory to solve frequently encountered problems. This definitive guide is essential for mechanical, aeronautical, acoustical, civil, electrical, and transportation engineers.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MECHANICAL SHOCK AND VIBRATION, INCLUDING Fundamental theory Instrumentation and measurements Procedures for analyzing and testing systems subject to shock and vibration Ground-motion, fluid-flow, wind-. and sound-induced vibration Methods for controlling shock and vibration Equipment design The effects of shock and vibration on humans
Book News Annotation:
Cyril Harris (then engineering, Columbia U.) was one of two editors of the 1961 first edition, and soldiered alone through edition after edition until the fifth in 2002, when he brought Piersol on board and Harris' name was added to the title. This edition is a more radical revision of the material than has gone before: several chapters on obsolete material have been dropped to make way for new techniques, all but one of the chapters whose authors have died were revised or rewritten by living authors, and most of the numerical values throughout are in customary units followed by SI units in parenthesis. What remains unchanged is the goal of providing practical guidance to working engineers and scientists actively engaged in solving shock and vibration problems.
