Engineering Mechanics 3: Dynamics

Author: Gross, D., Hauger, W., Schröder, J., Wall, W., Govindjee, S. | Size: 2.7 MB | Format: PDF | Publisher: Springer | Year: 2011 | pages: 359 | ISBN: 9783642140181

Presents undergraduates in mechanical and civil engineering with a clear knowledge of engineering mechanics

Covers numerous topics

Each chapter contains a variety of problems and solutions

English translation of a bestselling textbook on engineering mechanics education in German-speaking countries

Dynamics is the third volume of a three-volume textbook on Engineering Mechanics. It was written with the intention of presenting to engineering students the basic concepts and principles of mechanics in as simple a form as the subject allows. A second objective of this book is to guide the students in their efforts to solve problems in mechanics in a systematic manner. The simple approach to the theory of mechanics allows for the different educational backgrounds of the students. Another aim of this book is to provide engineering students as well as practising engineers with a basis to help them bridge the gaps between undergraduate studies, advanced courses on mechanics and practical engineering problems. The book contains numerous examples and their solutions. Emphasis is placed upon student participation in solving the problems. The contents of the book correspond to the topics normally covered in courses on basic engineering mechanics at universities and colleges. Volume 1 deals with Statics; Volume 2 contains Mechanics of Materials.

Content Level » Lower undergraduate

Keywords » Newton's laws - acceleration - angular momentum - degree of freedom - eigenfrequency - harmonic vibrations - impact - kinematics - kinetic energy - linear momentum - mass moments of inertia - numerical simulation - potential energy - principles of mechanics - resonance - rigid bodies - rotation - velocity - work-energy theorem
