### Features

• Consolidates a range of basic dynamics topics previously taught in several separate courses
• Introduces modern computer simulation techniques, using MATLAB® and Simulink®
• Employs a unified approach to show readers the importance of basic dynamics concepts
• Presents both particle and rigid-body dynamics and their applications
• Includes modeling and simulation examples, chapter problems, and a complete solutions manual

### Summary

Designed for sophomores and juniors in a mechanical/aerospace engineering program, this sophisticated introduction presents fundamental concepts and theory of dynamics and engineering mechanics. It dispenses with advanced theory in favor of applications and practical instruction. Unlike other introductory dynamics textbooks, this work covers an integrated range of dynamics areas, with extensive modeling through MATLAB® and Simulink® examples. A complete solutions manual is available with qualifying course adoptions, and computer code can be accessed from a companion website.
