Theory of Fractional Engineering Vibrations
Vibration is important subject in many fields, ranging from mechanical engineering to electronic one. This book aims at giving a combination of conventional linear vibrations with recent fractional ones from a view of engineering. It consists of two parts. One is for conventional linear vibrations in Chapters 1 - 6 based on the authors lectures on the course of ship hull vibrations for undergraduates and postgraduates in Ocean College, Zhejiang University, China. The other, Chapters 7 - 15, contains his research in fractional vibrations.
the book is suitable for researchers and graduate students in science and engieering. Preferred preliminaries are calculus, university physics, theoretic mechanics, and material mechanics for readers.
