Mechanical, Structural, and Earthquake Engineering Applications
Focuses on the Basic Methodologies Needed to Handle Random Processes After determining that most textbooks on random vibrations are mathematically intensive and often too difficult for students to fully digest in a single course, the authors of Random Vibration: Mechanical, Structural, and...
