About the book 

Imperfect designing of machine foundations based on empirical formulations has led to the problem of troublesome vibrations in the existing foundations. Recent developments in the field of structural and soil dynamics have helped establish basic design principles for various types of machine foundations. In order to achieve efficiency and economy in the design, it is imperative that the designer have an in depth knowledge of various aspects of analysis, design and construction of machine foundations.

This volume strives to achieve the twin objective of serving as a reference manual for the practising engineers and research workers and as useful text for students of civil engineering.

Besides the basic design principles, the handbook features:
  • Vibration theory applied to single, two-and multiple-degree freedom systems subjected to free and forced vibrations
  • Evaluation of design parameters by computation as well as by field testing
  • Analysis and design of block foundation for machines subjected to impact-type forces (hammers) and periodical forces (compressors)
  • Analysis and design of framed foundations for high-speed machinery (turbo-generators)
  • Design principles of block-type foundations
  • Principles and methods of structural isolation of machine foundations
  • Construction details of machine foundations
  • Useful reference data for designers
  • Illustrative case histories of sick machine foundations
  • illustrative numerical examples at the end of each chapter.
