Author of Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibration


S. Graham Kelly received an M.S. in 1977 and a Ph.D. in 1979, both in engineering mechanics, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. He served on the faculty at the University of Notre Dame from 1979 to 1982.

Since 1982, Dr. Kelly has served on the faculty at The University of Akron where he has been active in teaching, research, and administration.

Besides vibrations, Dr. Kelly has taught undergraduate courses in statics, dynamics, mechanics of solids, fluid mechanics, compressible fluid mechanics, numerical analysis, and freshman engineering.

Dr. Kelly's graduate teaching includes courses in vibrations of discrete systems, vibrations of continuous systems, nonlinear vibrations, continuum mechanics,

advanced mathematics, and hydrodynamic stability. In 1994 Dr. Kelly received the Chemstress award for the Outstanding Teacher in the College of Engineering.

Dr. Kelly has served The University of Akron as Associate Provost and Interim Dean of Engineering. Dr. Kelly is also the author of Schaum's Outline in Mechanical Vibrations and Schaum's Electronic Tutor in Mechanical Vibrations.

Preface to Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibration PDF


Engineers apply mathematics and science to solve problems. In a traditional undergraduate engineering curriculum, a student begins an academic career by taking courses in mathematics and basic sciences such as chemistry and physics.

A student begins to develop problem-solving skills in basic engineering science courses. For a mechanical engineering student, these courses include statics, dynamics, mechanics of solids, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics.

In such courses, students learn to apply basic laws of nature, constitutive equations, and equations of state to develop solutions to abstract engineering problems.

Vibrations are one of the first courses where students learn to apply the knowledge obtained from mathematics and basic engineering science courses to solve practical problems. Indeed the problem-solving skills developed in a vibrations course are as valuable as the knowledge of the subject of vibrations.

A solution of practical problems in vibrations requires modeling of physical systems. A system is abstracted from its surroundings.

Assumptions appropriate to the system are made. Basic engineering science and mathematics are applied to derive a mathematical model. The resulting solution is used to learn about system behavior that could be used in applications such as design. The reader of this text will learn about vibrations by using such a problem-solving approach.

An application of vibration analysis is in engineering design. Design principles are developed using analysis of model one-degree-of-freedom systems. Design applications are presented for multi-degree-of-freedom systems and continuous systems.

Many examples and homework problems have a design flavor. This book is intended as a text in a junior or senior level undergraduate course in vibrations. It could be used in a course populated by both undergraduate and beginning graduate students.

The prerequisites for such a course should include courses in statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, and mathematics through differential equations. Some material usually covered in a fluid mechanics course is used, but this material can be omitted without loss of continuity.
