Active and Passive Vibration Damping
An important work presenting in one volume the application of viscoelastic damping materials to control vibration and noise of structures, machinery, and vehicles Focuses primarily on the application of passive as well as actively treated viscoelastic damping materials to control vibration and noise of structures, machinery, and vehicles. Emphasis is placed on presenting the basic principles and potential applications of passive and active vibration damping technologies. The presentation encompasses a mix between the associated physical fundamentals, governing theories and optimal design strategies of various configurations of vibration damping treatments. Utilization of the smart materials to augment the vibration damping of passive treatments is the common thread which is pursued, in depth, among all the chapters of the book. This book is divided into two parts, the first dealing with materials theory and the second dealing with the practical application to vibrations. It presents the basics of various damping effective treatments such as constrained layers, shunted piezoelectric treatments, electromagnetic and shape memory fibers. Classical aspects of viscoelastic materials models are also analyzed from the experimental characterization of the material coefficients as well as their modeling. New models such as Golla-Hughes-McTavish (GHM ) model, augmented temperature field (ATF) model, fractional derivatives (FD) models. Modal strain energy (MSE) models are also deeply analyzed. Part II of the book is devoted to the detailed descriptions of advanced damping treatments using all the fundamentals presented in Part I. Each chapter of the book ends with a number of problems that cover the different aspects of theoretical analysis, design, and applications of vibration damping technologies. The book has a large number of numerical examples to reinforce the understanding of the theories covered, providing the means for exercising the knowledge gained, and emphasizing the learning of strategies for the design and application of active and passive vibration damping systems. The examples are supported by a set of MATLAB software modules to enable the designers of vibration damping systems to extend the theories presented to various applications. Written by an internationally recognized authority and pioneer, it summarizes and presents comprehensive coverage in one volume material that until now appears throughout a selection of references Presents a mix of the associated physical fundamentals, governing theories and optimal design strategies of various configurations of vibration damping treatments, a comprehensive coverage not available elsewhere With companion website including MATLAB software, solutions to all problems, and power point slides, the supporting tools enable hands-on experience of the analysis, design, optimization, and application to a wide range of situations

The Shock Absorber Handbook
Every one of the many millions of cars manufactured annually worldwide uses shock absorbers, otherwise known as dampers. These form a vital part of the suspension system of any vehicle, essential for optimizing road holding, performance and safety. This, the second edition of the Shock Absorber Handbook (first edition published in 1999), remains the only English language book devoted to the subject. Comprehensive coverage of design, testing, installation and use of the damper has led to the book's acceptance as the authoritative text on the automotive applications of shock absorbers. In this second edition, the author presents a thorough revision of his book to bring it completely up to date. There are numerous detail improvements, and extensive new material has been added particularly on the many varieties of valve design in the conventional hydraulic damper, and on modern developments such as electrorheological and magnetorheological dampers. The Shock Absorber Handbook, 2nd Edition provides a thorough treatment of the issues surrounding the design and selection of shock absorbers. It is an invaluable handbook for those working in industry, as well as a principal reference text for students of mechanical and automotive engineering.

Control of Cutting Vibration and Machining Instability: A Time-Frequency Approach for Precision, Micro and Nano Machining
Machining instability is a topical area, and there are a wide range of publications that cover the topic. However, many of these previous studies have started by assuming that the behavior of the system can be linearised. Meanwhile, there are many recent advances in the fields of signal processing, nonlinear dynamics, and nonlinear control, all of which are relevant to the machining stability problem. This book establishes the fundamentals of cutting mechanics and machine tool dynamics in the simultaneous time-frequency domain. The new nonlinear control theory developed by the authors that facilitates simultaneous control of vibration amplitude in the time-domain and spectral response in the frequency-domain provides the foundation for the development of a controller architecture universally viable for the control of dynamic instability including bifurcation and chaos. Once parameters underlying the coupling, interaction, and evolution of different cutting states and between the tool and workpiece are established, they can then be incorporated into the architecture to create a control methodology that mitigate machining instability and enable robust, chatter-free machine tool design applicable in particular to high speed micro- and nano-machining.

Mechanics of Optimal Structural Design: Minimum Weight Structures
In a global climate where engineers are increasingly under pressure to make the most of limited resources, there are huge potential financial and environmental benefits to be gained by designing for minimum weight. With Mechanics of Optimal Structural Design, David Rees brings the original approach of weight optimization to the existing structural design literature, providing a methodology for attaining minimum weight of a range of structures under their working loads. He addresses the current gap in education between formal structural design teaching at undergraduate level and the practical application of this knowledge in industry, describing the analytical techniques that students need to understand before applying computational techniques that can be easy to misuse without this grounding. * Shows engineers how to approach structural design for minimum weight in clear, concise terms* Contains many new least-weight design techniques, taking into consideration different manners of loading and including new topics that have not previously been considered within the least-weight theme* Considers the demands for least-weight road, air and space vehicles for the future* Enhanced by illustrative worked examples to enlighten the theory, exercises at the end of each chapter that enable application of the theory covered, and an accompanying website with worked examples and solutions housed at www.wiley.com/go/rees The least-weight analyses of basic structural elements ensure a spread of interest with many applications in mechanical, civil, aircraft and automobile engineering. Consequently, this book fills the gap between the basic material taught at undergraduate level and other approaches to optimum design, for example computer simulations and the finite element method.
