This book provides a new viewpoint for the study of vibrations exhibited by mechanical and structural systems. Tight integration of mathematical software makes it possible to address real world complexity in a manner that is readily accessible to the reader. It offers new approaches for discrete system modeling and for analysis of continuous systems. Substantial attention is given to several topics of practical importance, including FFT's experimental modal analysis, substructuring concepts, and response of heavily damped and gyroscopic systems.
