qThe analysis and design of structures subjected to time-dependent dynamic loads are explained by Paz (U. of Louisville) and Leigh (U. of Central Florida) at a level suitable for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate engineering students. Structures are modeled as single-degree-of-freedom systems, shear buildings, discrete multi-degree-of-freedom systems, and as systems with distributed properties. Fourier analysis, evaluation of absolute damping, and generalized coordinates are examined in a section titled qspecial topics.q Final sections discuss random vibration and earthquake engineering, with the latter being updated to conform to recent versions of the Uniform Building Code (UBC- 97) and the International Building Code (IBC-2000). A larger number of solved examples using computer programs have been book is interesting as well as scholarly and encourages the reader to continue rather than to put it down. The presentation and the many diagrams are excellent - Structural Engineer.
