Summary and Info
Textbook for students and engineers in practice containing all the basic kinematical and kinetic structures in dynamics together with carefully selected applicationsExceeds by far a usual textbook including a variety of examples, solutions, pictures and MATLAB simulationsComprehensive and detailed textbook leading the student to understand the fundamental laws of kinematics and kinetics and presenting a systematic categorization of vibrationsThis concise textbook for students preferably of a postgraduate level, but also for engineers in practice, contains the basic kinematical and kinetic structures of dynamics together with carefully selected applications. The book is a condensed introduction to the fundamental laws of kinematics and kinetics, on the most important principles of mechanics and presents the equations of motion in the form of Lagrange and Newton-Euler. Selected problems of linear and nonlinear dynamics are treated, as well as problems of vibration formation. The presented selection of topics gives a useful basis for stepping into more advanced problems of dynamics. The contents of this book represent the result of a regularly revised course, which has been and still is given for masters students at the Technische Universität München.
