The analysis and control mechanism of vibrations are elucidated in this extensive book. Vibration is a phenomenon that we can notice in various systems since its impact can vary vastly from the personal discomfort generated from the unevenness of a road to the downfall of a building or a bridge at the time of earthquake. This book is an abridgement of research works on vibration examination and control. It reflects on new techniques that help us understand and mitigate this phenomenon. This book deals with novel developments on vibration analysis and comprises of a series of case studies that illustrate new approaches on vibration control. The applications differ and include areas like vehicle suspension systems, wind turbines and civil engineering structures.
