Mechanical Vibrations and Noise Engineering is a comprehensive textbook written for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical, civil, aeronautical and automobile engineering. The book provides a unified presentation of the fundamental aspects of mechanical vibrations and noise engineering. Beginning with the analysis of undamped and damped free vibrations, the book explores the analytical methods to calculate the natural frequency, equivalent stiffness, time period, damping factor, damped natural frequency, logarithmic decrement, transmissibility, amplitude of force vibrations, critical speed of shaft, and frequency of torsional vibrations.
