This book is easy to read and provides a lot of useful examples. The concepts that are harder to grasp have in depth examples that clarify the process. The problems provided at the end of each chapter are a good mixture of applicable and conceptual. This is a great book for understanding vibrations as a whole.In terms of the condition of the book, it was exactly as described. I couldn't be happier.
I am having a hard time getting into this book.I really like Chopra and I like how Clough and Penzien added random processes towards the end of the book. It provided me some room to grow.
The content of the book is excellent, but the print quality is poor. I'm disappointed with the quality of the printing of the book, some pages uncut and I are some pictures and graphics are blurry. The book looks like a photocopy.
The product shipped exactly as described. The book was new and packaged very well. Not a single crumpled page, the spine was stiff as if it had never been opened, and it was almost $50 cheaper than my university bookstore.As I have not yet finished the course I purchased the textbook for I won't comment on the content of the book, except that as a professional in the work force for structural dynamics test and evaluation I am excited and glad this book includes a chapter on Experimental Modal Analysis that should prove a valuable resource.
Well written textbook. This textbook prepares the foundation and the tools to apply the FE method to vibration application. Good book.
