Vibration Diagnosis and Control
In the previous chapters, we dealt with the analysis of vibration of single / multi degrees-of-freedom systems including the continuous system. We also discussed the principles of analysis of whirling of shafts and also the torsional vibrations of complex systems. In all the cases, we either analyzed the response of free vibrations and / or forced vibrations when the bodies / structures / components are subjected to a known disturbing force(s). These types of problems are called direct problems. While knowing the analysis of such problems is very important, the indirect problems, wherein we are required to pinpoint the source of vibrations and suggest suitable remedial measures, are much more ...
