This quantity comprises the invited papers awarded on the ninth overseas convention Dynamical structures idea and purposes held in LÃ³dz, Poland, December 17-20, 2007, facing nonlinear dynamical structures. The convention introduced jointly a wide team of remarkable scientists and engineers, who take care of quite a few difficulties of dynamics encountered either in engineering and in day-by-day life.
Topics lined comprise, between others, bifurcations and chaos in mechanical platforms; keep watch over in dynamical platforms; asymptotic equipment in nonlinear dynamics; balance of dynamical structures; lumped and non-stop platforms vibrations; unique numerical equipment of vibration research; and man-machine interactions.
Thus, the reader is given an summary of the latest advancements of dynamical platforms and will stick with the latest tendencies during this box of technology. This publication should be of curiosity to to natural and utilized scientists operating within the box of nonlinear dynamics.
