SAE International Releases New Book on Vehicle Vibration Theory & Analysis

WARRENDALE, Pa. Jan. 18, 2011 Principles of Vibration Analysis with Applications in Automotive Engineering, January 2011

The 12-chapter book goes beyond other texts on the subject since it integrates the advances of modern modal analysis, experimental testing, and numerical analysis with fundamental theory. No other book brings all these topics together, compares them, and then provides experience with practical application to vehicle engineering by offering problems and examples. The book summarizes basic vibration theory and established methods for analyzing vibrations. It then illustrates these concepts and procedures using worked-out examples.

Occupant expectations for smooth-riding, refined, and reliable vehicles have increased significantly in recent years. Understanding and controlling vibration is important not only from an improved passenger comfort standpoint, but is also critical for greater vehicle durability and reliability. Vehicles with moving parts can literally vibrate themselves apart if vibrations are not controlled. Understanding where vibrations originate in a car or machine is fundamental to begin to control them.

The second-largest group of target readers is university students who could use the book as a text and reference. Problems included in each chapter help this audience understand the concepts and develop problem-solving skills.

Another major group of readers includes researchers who are working to improve theoretical models and advanced testing techniques.
