Item description for Dynamics With Friction: Modelling, Analysis and Experiment (Series on Stability, Vibration and Control of Systems, Series B, Vol 7) (Pt. 2) by Ardeshir Guran...
The dynamics of dissipative mechanical and structural systems is being investigated at various institutions and laboratories worldwide with ever-increasing sophistication of modeling, analysis and experiments.This book offers a collection of contributions from these research centers that represent the state-of-the-art in the study of friction oscillators. It provides the reader with the fruits of a team effort by leaders in this fascinating field.
The present part II of this volume on Dynamics with Friction is a continuation of the previous part I, and is designed to help synthesize our current knowledge regarding the role of friction in mechanical and structural systems as well as everyday life. The topics covered include interaction of vibration and friction at dry sliding contacts, friction-induced instability in disks, dynamics of lubricated flexible links in kinematic chains, modal interactions in periodic structures, dynamics of an experimentally excited beam, transient waves in viscoelastic materials, dynamic stability of plates with damping, friction modeling and dynamic computation, damping through use of passive and semi-active dry friction forces.
This book gives a comprehensive picture of dynamics of dissipative mechanical and structural systems. It also gives an up-to-date account of the present state of the field. It will be of interest to engineers, rheologists, material scientists, applied mathematicians, physicists and historians of science and technology.

review Nov 16, 2003
The book is important because most of nature, machines, and structures involve dynamical friction. The preface alone is worth the price of the book, along with a summary of the importance of friction in nearly everything. Excellent technical features are the wide range of simple to complex models, stability versus instability studies, well-presented results, and mathematical approaches that transverse from the simple to the complex.
