Just what I need--I got a call from a crane customer on
Monday whose customer is complaining about the crane
yo-yoing.  Does Timoshenko have anything on yo-yoing?

Rajendran,

For "easier comprehension" - and great value - get Timoshenko's "Vibration Problems in Engineering." Also "Theory of Structures", same author. No purely scientific mumbo-jumbo, and most practical engineering problems considered.

  Subject: Opinion on a structural dynamics book


Christopher Wright has, often, recommended a book by H M Irvine on the subject of structural dynamics. I am tempted to buy a copy. However, before doing so, I want to make sure that it is easier to comprehend than the book on the same subject by Clough and Penzien. I have a copy of the latter and I won't say that it is an easy read. If Christopher or others have knowledge of both the books, would they, please, share their thoughts?

  Thanks.

  Rajendran
