Introduction to the theory of vibrations of mechanical systems. First part, Modelling and Analysis, is devoted to this solution that can be approximated by the linear models. The second part is on experimental investigations.
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their mechanisms.
