About this book


- Models of vibro-impact systems are widely used in machine dynamics, vibration engineering, and structural mechanics. - Only monograph on this subject in English language. - Systematically presents the theory of vibro-impact systems by analysis of typical engineering applications. - Experimental data and computer simulations are presented. - Targeted to engineers and researchers in design and investigation of mechanical systems as well as to lecturers and advanced students. Contents: - Vibro-impact systems. - Equivalent linearisation of vibro-impact systems.- Vibro-impact processes in systems with single degree of freedom. - Vibro-impact processes with multiple degrees of freedom. - Structural synthesis of self-sustaining vibro-impact systems
