Makes a bridge between theoretical (physics) and applied (engineering) classical mechanics
Contains numerous examples supported by color figures, illustrating various theoretical concepts
This is the second volume of three books, by the same author, devoted to classical mechanics. In this book, Classical Mechanics: Dynamics, dynamical and advanced mechanics problems are stated, illustrated, and discussed, including a few novel concepts by comparison to standard text books and monographs. Aside from being addressed to a wide spectrum of graduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, and instructors, from the fields of mechanical and civil engineering, this volume, which includes a wealth of worked examples and applications, is also intended to be used as a self-contained reference for researchers in applied mathematics and physical sciences.
Chapter 1 covers dynamics of a particle and systems of particles, as well as rigid body motion about a point. Mathematical and physical pendulums are discussed in Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 presents static and dynamic problems of discrete mechanical systems. Classical equations of mechanics are studied in Chapter 4, and Chapter 5 introduces and illustrates classical impact theory. Chapter 6 deals with the vibrations of mechanical systems, and Chapter 7 briefly studies the dynamics of planets. Dynamics of variable mass systems are presented in Chapter 8, and body and multibody dynamics are studied in Chapter 9. A geometric approach to dynamical problems is the focus of Chapter 10, and Chapter 11 ends the text with geometric dynamics.
