# Fundamentals of stress and vibration

### Uniqueness of the resource: Fundamentals of stress and vibration

The book is intended towards the development of engineers who aspire to peruse product development. The book resorts to numerical culture to explain concepts. The approach has multiple benefits such as sense of numbers, mathematical modelling of the situation and a detailed insight to what parameter has what influence. The book has more than 100 challenging situations solved step by step, providing every possible insight. The situations are well concluded with engineering facts that are crucial to a designer or an analyst. The situations presented are idealized product situations which lay the foundation for strong design culture.

A chapter on mathematics is designed with examples from design situations that are relevant not just for strength and equilibrium assessment, but also for manufacture, material selection among others.

A chapter on engineering failures not only gives young engineers a detailed understanding of strength failures, such as fatigue and fracture, but also critical material behavior.

### Salient features

• 100 plus idealized product situations that systematically and mathematically explain design facets
• Concepts are naturalized : equations of motion are used to explain Newmark integration formulae
• All chapters of structural physics are given equal emphasis
• Mathematics relevant to structural physics is presented with practical examples
• Important tools for designers, such as Campbell diagram and Goodman diagram, are detailed with uses and its possible abuses caused from misinterpretations
• Highest clarity is provided on stress concentration fatigue and fracture.
• Foundation for advanced structural learning including detailed mathematical treatment of axisymmetric situations
• Product relevant engineering facts as part of conclusions are given
• Large numbers of graphs are plotted, be it stress or a mechanics situation, to provide insight and assume generalisation
• Optimisation (calculus based) is carried out in many situations to provide young engineers a detailed sense of why and how of optimisation
• In line with current practices, a stochastic optimisation example is included to prepare the candidate for advanced learning
