"Flow-induced Vibrations" is constructed as an engineering guide primarily based on research sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation located in Hannover, Germany. There are a staggering number of different disciplines and approaches to this subject, and from my own perspective this is one of the best guides published. The work is detailed, logically organized (on purpose), and is the most impressively illustrated work of its kind in print. Explanations are clear and crisp but do not leave the reader hanging either. The math used is first year calculus and can be understood by the average graduate engineer. This is not your treatise on fluid dynamics; it is clearly specific to vibrational analyses induced by fluid flow; air, water, or other. I am most pleased with owning a book of this quality and detail.
Great reference for practical problems in industry.
