Product description

From the Back Cover

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.
