    © Lawrence N. Virgin 2007 and Cambridge University Press, 2010. This book concerns the vibration and the stability of slender structural components. The loss of stability of structures is an important aspect of structural mechanics and is presented here in terms of dynamic behavior. A variety of structural components are analyzed with a view to predict their response to various (primarily axial) loading conditions. A number of different techniques are presented, with experimental verification from the laboratory. The book presents methods by which the combined effects of vibration and buckling on various structures can be assessed.
