MAE 345LR Intermediate Dynamics


Intermediate dynamics is a preliminary course in modeling dynamical systems for mechanical and aerospace engineering students. Fundamentals methods of kinematics and kinetics for a system of particles are presented with applications to physical systems. This discussion is followed by the development of equations of motion of a rigid body, including the study of torque free motion and conservation principles. Constrained motion is discussed briefly along with a short study of impulsive motion. The concept of equilibrium points for dynamical systems is introduced and methods of linear analysis are discussed in conjunction with linearization about the equilibrium point. The course concludes with an exposition of vibration theory and its relationship to Eigenvalue problems.
