Free Vibrations of Beams and Frames
By Karnovsky, Igor A. and Lebed, Olga

This monograph provides solutions to a large variety of beam and frame vibration problems. The intent is to provide information that is not currently available and solutions for the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions problems that engineers and researchers use for the analysis of dynamical behavior of beams and frames. Written by noted experts in vibration theory and optimal control of vibration, this valuable, one-of-a-kind reference provides:

* Equations of classical beam theory
* Special functions for dynamical analysis of beams and frames
* Calculation procedures
* Analytical and numerical results for one-span and multispan beams with elastic and classical supports
* Analytical and numerical results for beams with lumped and rotational masses
* Numerous tables, charts, and worked solutions
* Easy-access organization
