This thesis aimed to apply the SEM for dynamic analysis of cracked beam subjected moving harmonic force in the frequency domain. Namely, the frequency response of a cracked beam subjected to moving harmonic force is obtained explicitly and examined in dependence upon the load and crack parameters. This task is acknowledged herein spectral analysis of cracked beam subjected to moving load.
This book is a compilation of some selected articles devoted to the analysis and control
of vibrations. Vibrations are a phenomenon found in many engineering systems; their
harmful effects are translated into low performance, noise, energy misspend,
discomfort and system breakdown, among others. These are the reasons why, in the
last years, researchers have made great efforts in seeking ways to eliminate them
totally or partially.
