Updating this review after a year or so, I would reduce the stars to two (if Amazon allowed this) because, due to the flaws in the Matlab tools mentioned above I have not found any real use for the tools in day to day practice.
The code is in .p format, not in .m format. So it doesn not let to learn anything.
A very bad book. It is just a software manual
I would recommend this book to those in academia and industry looking to obtain a handbook on the basics of engineering principles that are commonly used in everyday engineering problems.
In addition, what's nice about this book, as I recently found out, is that the author maintains a website for the book:
From this website, one can get a lot of information on what this book is about, how to use the Matlab functions of the book in engineering analysis via carefully selected demo examples, technical supports, updates, and beyond. This, from a reader's viewpoint, really helps amplifying the utilities of the book.
This book integrates the central theories of fundamental mechanics (stresses/strains, dynamics, vibration, and vibration control) and practical problem solving techniques including computer applications with Matlab. Explanations and discussions of subjects are concise, yet very clear and accurate. Examples are well-selected to demonstrate underlined principles and problem solving techniques. In addition, numerous illustrations are expertly used to clarify ideas, saving the reader from reading lines and lines of text. This book is also pedagogically well organized with a consistent approach to conclusions from objectives in each chapter.
I strongly recommend this book as a must reference for those who want to become an expert in the areas of structural dynamics and vibration.
