  • EN.560.202     Dynamics (Undergraduate)

Basic principles of classical mechanics applied to the motion of particles, systems of particles and rigid bodies. Kinematics: analytical description of motion; rectilinear motions of particles; rigid body motion. Kinetics: force, mass, and acceleration; energy and momentum principles. Dynamics of single and multi degree-of-freedom systems, under free vibration, harmonic excitation, and arbitrary (e.g., earthquake) accelerations. Includes laboratory experience.
