7. “Mechatronic Control of Distributed Noise and Vibration: A Lyapunov Approach” by Christopher D Rahn

“Mechatronic Control of Distributed Noise and Vibration: A Lyapunov Approach” Book Review: This is a book about vibrating systems. Vibration affects quality, productivity, and efficiency. Defects during manufacturing can be caused by vibrations. Unhealthy sounds and vibrations can be harmful. They give rise to a dangerous, unhealthy, and uncomfortable operating environment. Now, sophisticated electromechanical systems for vibration and noise control have been designed. Mechatronic systems join computer software and hard­ware with electromechanical sensors. They provide a great vibration and noise control.
