Gain a Greater Understanding of How Key Components Work

Using realistic examples from everyday life, including sports (motion of balls in air or during impact) and vehicle motions, Applied Dynamics emphasizes the applications of dynamics in engineering without sacrificing the fundamentals or rigor. The text provides a detailed analysis of the principles of dynamics and vehicle motions analysis. An example included in the topic of collisions is the famous "Immaculate Reception," whose 40th anniversary was recently celebrated by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Covers Stability and Response Analysis in Depth

The book addresses two- and three-dimensional Newtonian mechanics, it covers analytical mechanics, and describes Lagrange’s and Kane’s equations. It also examines stability and response analysis, and vibrations of dynamical systems. In addition, the text highlights a developing interest in the industry—the dynamics and stability of land vehicles.

Contains Lots of Illustrative Examples

In addition to the detailed coverage of dynamics applications, over 180 examples and nearly 600 problems richly illustrate the concepts developed in the text.

Topics covered include:

  • General kinematics and kinetics
  • Expanded study of two- and three-dimensional motion, as well as of impact dynamics
  • Analytical mechanics, including Lagrange’s and Kane’s equations
  • The stability and response of dynamical systems, including vibration analysis
  • Dynamics and stability of ground vehicles

Designed for classroom instruction appealing to undergraduate and graduate students taking intermediate and advanced dynamics courses, as well as vibration study and analysis of land vehicles, Applied Dynamics can also be used as an up-to-date reference in engineering dynamics for researchers and professional engineers.
