About the Author

Born in France and educated in France and Switzerland, Ferd held an M.S. degree from the Sorbonne and an Sc.D. degree in theoretical mechanics from the University of Geneva. He came to the United States after serving in the French army during the early part of World War II and had taught for four years at Williams College in the Williams-MIT joint arts and engineering program. Following his service at Williams College, Ferd joined the faculty of Lehigh University where he taught for thirty-seven years. He held several positions, including the University Distinguished Professors Chair and Chairman of the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Department, and in 1995 Ferd was awarded an honorary Doctor of Engineering degree by Lehigh University.

Born in Philadelphia, Russ holds a B.S. degree in civil engineering from the University of Delaware and an Sc.D. degree in the field of structural engineering from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He taught at Lehigh University and Worchester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) before joining the faculty of the University of Connecticut where he held the position of Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department and taught for twenty-six years. In 1991 Russ received the Outstanding Civil Engineer Award from the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

David holds a B.S. degree in ocean engineering and a M.S. degree in civil engineering from the Florida Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. degree in civil engineering from the University of Connecticut. He was employed by General Dynamics Corporation Electric Boat Division for five years, where he provided submarine construction support and conducted engineering design and analysis associated with pressure hull and other structures. In addition, he conducted research in the area of noise and vibration transmission reduction in submarines. He then taught at Lafayette College for one year prior to joining the civil engineering faculty at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, where he has been since 1990. David is currently a member of the American Railway Engineering & Maintenance-of-way Association Committee 15 (Steel Structures), and the American Society of Civil Engineers Committee on Blast, Shock, and Vibratory Effects. He has also worked with the Federal Railroad Administration on their bridge inspection training program. Professional interests include bridge engineering, railroad engineering, tall towers, structural forensics, and blast-resistant design. He is a licensed professional engineer in Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Phil received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas Tech University in 1985 and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1987 and 1989 respectively. His present interests include structural dynamics, structural health monitoring, that is damage detection in structures using changes their vibration characteristics, and undergraduate engineering education. Phil spends his summers working at Los Alamos National Laboratory where he is a mentor in the Los Alamos Dynamics Summer School and he does research in the area of structural health monitoring. He has received an SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award in 1992, the Dean’s Outstanding Teacher award at Rose-Hulman in 2000 and the Rose-Hulman Board of Trustees Outstanding Scholar Award in 2001. Phil is on the executive committee of the Mechanics Division of the American Society of Engineering Education.

E-book doesn't display greek characters correctly Sept. 2 2013
By Dan Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The kindle version of this text does not display any of the greek characters correctly in the actual text. This makes it difficult to put together some of the concepts and corresponding images, and is making an already difficult class that much harder. As far as the content of the book is concerned, it's not very easy to digest on your own, but it is thorough.

Overall great May 16 2013
By jose gonzales - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's a good book. It does provide some examples to explain the concepts. Just note that those are not step by step guides to solve all the problems because well that wouldn't be useful in engineering. It introduces the topics, goes over derivation of formulas then explains how to apply the formulas. But in the exercises you need to figure out how and which formula to use. Because setting up a problem promotes critical thinking and problem solving skills which this book does a good job at. I used this book for a sophomore level engineering class so just be advised that you do need to know the required mathematics which aren't too bad and are mainly used for the derivations. Overall it's a good book but could be improved

This book is pretty easy to understand. It explains things well and has great examples. This is the book that my professor is basing his class on, and it's very easy to follow.

Exactly what I ordered, it was in great condition, and it arrived on time. This is definitely one of the best books I've used as an engineering student
It's ok. Could be better. Dec 19 2014

This book is ok. As a second-year engineering student, I wish it had more step-by-step examples and was less verbose.
