About the Authors
  • Emphasizing learning through problem solving, Donald Greenwood analyzes in detail the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to dynamics. He describes techniques that will improve computational efficiency considerably, especially when applied to complex dynamical systems. A key feature of his text is the inclusion of many proven examples and homework problems. The book is intended for use in graduate courses on dynamics and will appeal to practicing mechanical and aerospace engineers.

    • Provides broad coverage of advanced dynamical principles
    • Practical problem solving emphasized through worked examples and homework exercises
    • Presents several methods that offer simpler analysis and improved computational efficiency over standard approaches

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Throughout there are examples in the text which are natural and illustrate the ideas very well. There are also excellent collections of problems (with solutions) with each chapter which are challenging and good training in modelling particulate, rigid and jointed systems of considerable variety." Contemporary Physics, Dr. C. Athorne, University of Glasgow, UK

    "...a verty useful reference for the majority of mathematical methods applicable to particle and rigid body dynamics." The Aeronautical Journal, Dr. H. R. Harrison
