About this book

This is the last book of three devoted to Mechanics, and uses the theoretical background presented in Classical Mechanics: Kinematics and Statics and Classical Mechanics: Dynamics. It focuses on exhibiting a unique approach, rooted in the classical mechanics, to study mechanical and electromagnetic processes occurring in Mechatronics. Contrary to the majority of the books devoted to Applied Mechanics, this volume places a particular emphasis on theory, modeling, analysis, and control of gyroscopic devices, including the military applications. This volume provides practicing mechanical/mechatronic engineers and designers, researchers, graduate and postgraduate students with a knowledge of mechanics focused directly on advanced applications.

About the authors

Jan Awrejcewicz is the 2011 winner of the Humboldt Prize. This award is granted from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany. The award is based on a reasearcher's entire achievements to date, whose fundamental discoveries, new theories or insights have had significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future. Prof. Awrejcewicz is also the main author of “Nonsmooth Dynamics of Contacting Thermoelastic Bodies”, © 2009, Springer (AMMA v. 16), 978-0-387-09562-0. He is also the sole editor of “Modeling, Simulation and Control of Nonlinear Engineering Dynamical Systems”, © 2009 Springer, 978-1-4020-8777-6.
