Random Vibration and Statistical Linearization by J. B. Roberts, P. D. Spanos This self-contained volume explains the general method of statistical linearization and its use in solving random vibration problems. Numerous examples show advanced undergraduate and graduate students many practical applications. 1990 edition.
Applied Analysis by Cornelius Lanczos Classic work on analysis and design of finite processes for approximating solutions of analytical problems. Features algebraic equations, matrices, harmonic analysis, quadrature methods, and much more.
Digital Processing of Random Signals: Theory and Methods by Boaz Porat This excellent advanced text rigorously covers several topics. Geared toward students of electrical engineering, its material is sufficiently general to be applicable to other engineering fields. 1994 edition.
Parametric Random Vibration by Raouf A. Ibrahim This systematic treatment examines linear and nonlinear dynamical systems subject to parametric random vibrations. It formulates stochastic stability theorems and analytical techniques for determining random response of nonlinear systems. 1985 edition.
The most comprehensive text and reference available on the study of random vibrations, this book was designed for graduate students and for mechanical, structural, and aerospace engineers. Random Vibrations: Theory and Practice encompasses all the key topics, including fundamental background material, random vibration development with applications to design, and random signal analysis. The broad scope of this text makes it useful both as a clear and thorough introduction to the field and as an authoritative reference for practitioners who wish to investigate special topics. In addition to coverage of background topics in probability, statistics, and random processes, this text develops methods for analyzing and controlling random vibrations. It explains how to avoid fatigue and fracture brought on by random vibration stresses and describes how to analyze random signals obtained for field and test measurements. Detailed examples employ random signals taken from actual random sources, and an abundance of figures, tables and charts support and clarify the text.
