Solving Engineering Problems in Dynamics

2014-01-01
Solving Engineering Problems in Dynamics helps practicing engineers successfully analyze real mechanical systems by presenting comprehensive methods for analyzing the motion of engineering systems and their components. This analysis covers three basic phases: 1) composing the differential equation of motion; 2) solving the differential equation of motion; and 3) analyzing the solution. Although a formal engineering education provides the fundamental skills for completing these phases, many engineers nonetheless would benefit by gaining further insight in using these fundamentals to solve real-life engineering problems. This book thus describes in step-by-step order the methods related to each of these phases.
