The book exhibits a collection of eigenmodes of membranes and plates. It illustrates special effects associated with focusing, whispering gallery and bouncing ball, as well as dynamic motion sequences of a membrane and a plate. Issues involved in experimental determination of internal damping rates and mechanisms in elastic beams are discussed.
About: Vibration and Damping in Distributed Systems, Volume II discusses asymptotic methods, including equations with variable coefficients, asymptotic estimates of eigenfrequencies of membranes and plates, WKB approximations and the wave propagation method of Keller and Rubinow, which are developed and applied to scattering problems.
