The importance of Structural Dynamics is to find the behaviour of a structure when subjected to some action. This can be done by means of dynamics loads or vibration. Vibration is the motion of a particle or a body or a system of concentrated bodies having been displaced from a position of equilibrium, appearing as oscillation. Vibration is the study of repetitive motion of objects relative to a stationery frame of reference or equilibrium position. The system tends to return to its original equilibrium position under the action of restoring forces.

Concept of Vibration CE6701 Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering notes

All bodies having mass and elasticity are capable to vibrate. The mass is inherent in the body and elasticity cause relative motion among its parts. When body particles are displaced application of external force, the internal forces in the form of elastic energy present in the body, try to bring it to its original position. At equilibrium position, the whole of the elastic energy is converted into kinetic energy and the body continuous to move in the opposite direction because of it. The whole of the kinetic energy is again converted into elastic due to which the body returns to the equilibrium position.
