The dynamic condensation method which has recently been developed by the author for the reduction of Eigen problems is incorporated in Chapter 13. This method of reduction provides a virtually exact solution for each mode in the reduced system. A new chapter on random vibration introduces the reader to this fascinating topic in structural dynamics from an engineering application point of view. Several sections of the book have been rewritten in an effort to clarify the presentation and numerous problems have been added to various chapters of the book. The computer programs presented in Appendix I have been revised more comment statements being included to facilitate program usage. Finally two new appendices have been added to the book; one providing the answers to the problems proposed as exercises in Part I and the other presenting a glossary of basic definitions and concepts employed in the field of structural dynamics. The author is indebted to the many students colleagues and practicing.
