This fourth edition of this volume features a new chapter on computational methods that presents the basic principles on which most modern computer programs are developed. It introduces an example on rotor balancing and expands on the section on shock spectrum and isolation. It adds coverage of the methods of assumed modes and incorporates a new section on suspension bridges to illustrate the application of the continuos system theory to simplified models for the calculation of natural frequencies.
