6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This unique book commemorates the 65th birthday of Stephen H. Crandall  one of the founding fathers and most active developers and elucidators of the science of random vibrations. Leading scientists from all over the world have contributed 33 papers addressing almost every important problem of random vibrations. The book thus represents both the stateoftheart as well as the most recent developments, and will appeal to those in industry and academia who want to achieve a rigorous understanding of the many facets of the subject.

Random vibration of systems with nonlinear restoring forces by
Stephen H Crandall(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two procedures are discussed for studying the response of nonlinear systems to random excitation. The FokkerPlanck method is potentially applicable to a wide class of problems but the integrations required have only been effected in a few special cases. The equivalent linearization method is easy to carry out but is limited to small nonlinearities. It is demonstrated that to first order in the nonlinearity the equivalent linearization estimate of mean square stationary response is identical with that provided by the FokkerPlanck equation. A new equivalent linearization procedure for estimating the expected frequency of zero crossings in the random response is described and shown to give the same result as the FokkerPlanck equation

Dynamic response of systems with structural damping by
Stephen H Crandall(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The response of simple vibratory systems containing structural damping is studied analytically when the excitation is an impulse and when the excitation is stationary random vibration. It is found that in a strict sense the assumption of ideal structural damping represents a physically unrealizable model because a small precursor response occurs before the application of an impulsive load. For stationary random excitation exact solutions for the mean square response are compared with approximate solutions obtained from two increasingly accurate "equivalent viscous" substitutes for structural damping

Random vibration of beams by
Stephen H Crandall(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The calculated response of a uniform beam to stationary random excitation depends greatly on the dynamical model postulated, on the damping mechanism assumed and on the nature of the random excitation process. To illustrate this, the mean square deflections, slopes, bending moment and shear forces have been compared for four different dynamical models, with three different damping mechanisms, subjected to a distributed transverse loading process which is uncorrected spacewise and which is either ideally, "white" timewise or bandlimited with an upper cutoff frequency. The dynamic models are the BernoulliEuler beam, the Timoshenko beam and two intermediate models, the Rayleigh beam and a beam which has the shear flexibility of the Timoshenko beam but not the rotary inertia. The damping mechanisms are transverse viscous damping, rotary viscous damping and Voight viscoelasticity. It is found that many of the mean square response quantities are finite when the excitation is ideally white (i.e., when the input has infinite mean square), however some of the responses are unbounded. For these cases the rate of growth of the response as the cutoff frequency of the excitation is increased is obtained
