Here is the listing of Best reference books on Structural Dynamics.
|1. “Dynamics of Structures: Applications to Earthquake Engineering” by A. K. Chopra
Book Review: This book is very suitable for graduate and senior level courses in the field of dynamics of structures and earthquake engineering. The book contains many topics that relate to the theory of structural dynamics and its application pertaining to the earthquake analysis, response and design of structures. The book requires no prior knowledge of structural dynamics and the concepts are very detailed and integrated and the book is good for self-study by students and professionals.
|2. “Dynamics of Structures” by R.W. Clough and J. Penzien
Book Review: This book teaches dynamics of structures to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in the field of civil engineering. This book is a great reference for researchers and practicing engineers. The book demonstrates the state of art methods that are used to assess the seismic performance of foundation systems and contains information on earthquake engineering. The book also demonstrates frequency domain analysis for SDOF and MDOD systems and also provides step-by-step methods for solving linear and non-linear equations of motion.
|3. “Elements of Vibration Analysis” by L. Meirovitch|
