This book presents broad description of numerical tools successfully applied to structural dynamic analysis. Physically we deal with non-conservative systems. The discrete approach formulated with the use of the classical finite element method results in elemental matrices, which can be directly added to global structure matrices. A more general approach is carried out with the space-time finite element method. In such a case, a trajectory of the moving concentrated parameter in space and time can be simply defined.
We consider structures described by pure hyperbolic differential equations such as strings and structures described by hyperbolic-parabolic differential equations such as beams and plates. More complex structures such as frames, grids, shells, and three-dimensional objects, can be treated with the use of the solutions given in this book.

From the reviews:
"The authors deal with many numerical methods to solve problems concerning vibrations of structures under moving inertial loads; semi-analytical methods are presented to better understand the differential equations that govern the mechanical problems. ... An appendix contains computer programs for some structures, and a rich bibliography (154 titles) follows. ... The book can be useful for many engineers, researchers and students, and represents a valuable contribution to the field." (Petre P. Teodorescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1254, 2013)
