Mechanische Schwingungen

Author: Jacob P. DenHartog

Release Date: 2013-07-02
Genre: Science

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.
