This present handbook is an effort to start squarely at the measuring end of the spectrum It tries to start with the industrial or technological problem and throw light on it by discussion of known practical methods and of such theory as may be unavoidable. Such is the aim of the book; but in places the reader may opine that the aim has not been fulfilled, Why is this? Because rubber is a material of paramount importance, quite unique in the control of vibration; and very little substantial ... Read more
