The material is well structured and the book is written in a clear and concise manner that's why I give five stars to the author. But I am really disappointed because I do believe that is unacceptable nowadays to allow for printing a book with such a poor quality of sketches/pictures. I think that most of them are scanned from previous material, and unfortunately it turned out that the scanning equipment was too sophisticated for author's assistants. So, I rate the publisher with just one star! - Please note that my comment refers to the fifth edition.

This book will take manic, uncontrollable dumps all over your dreams of learning structural dynamics. There very well may be a mistake on every single page. I've yet to test this out, because I couldn't make it past chapter 8 without losing my vision trying to see their figures that look like someone took a picture on a 2003 camera phone, imported it to ms paint, reduced the resolution by half, printed it out, scanned it back onto a computer, then print it out again at whatever place was dumb enough to decide to publish this book.

I used to read the Structural Dynamics (3rd ed.) from my university library. It was a great book with all explanation very clear and good examples.
Then a had the opportunity to buy the 5th edition. The text is a little different, but it is not a problem. The big problem is the figures that are horribles. It seems that all figures were scanned in low resolution.

This is one of the most comprehensive, easy to understand, book on structural dynamics in the market. Thoroughly recommended for the advanced undergraduate or postgraduate. It may be a bit pricey though i feel.

[A review of the 5th Edition 2006.]

Paz gives a comprehensive explanation of his subject. Suitable to a reader at perhaps the second or third undergraduate year, and who has had some calculus and linear algebra. A substantial portion of the text involves solving linear systems of equations, to find eigenvalues and eigenvectors. And for this, the maths background is essential.

What distinguishes the book from many older texts is the intensive use of computers to solve equations. This permits the tackling of harder problems, that are amenable only to numerical solutions.

Also, if you already use some other numerical package, like Maple or Mathematica, then you can ignore the binaries on the enclosed CD, and just recode.

Format: Hardcover
This books covers the very basic as well as advanced topics of structural dynamics in an easily understandable manner. Contains listing of some Fortran programs. But it is not written in Metric units! Indian edition of this book costs much less.
