Description:

FUNDAMENTALS OF APPLIED DYNAMICS is a unique blend of both the modern and the historical, emphasizing dynamics with an analytical paradigm more commonly associated with the mechanics of solids. The distinction between momentum-based 2nd energy-based approaches is clearly drawn, and bold techniques are presented. This text presents engineering mechanics as a unified field and, though emphasizing dynamics, integrates topics from courses such as design, strength of materials, state-space systems analysis, mechanical behavior of materials, and the humanities that have not traditionally been a part of the dynamics curriculum in order to show students the relevance of what they are learning.
