SD 553: Advanced Dynamics



The principal goal of this course is to increase the studentís understanding to the point that real-world dynamic problems can be analyzed and solved. Following a review of particle kinematics and dynamics, the three-dimensional motion of rigid bodies and multibody systems will be covered, as well as an introduction to the important energy-based methods of mechanics (most notably Lagrangeís equations). By the end of the course, the student will be able to analyze and understand the dynamics of complex mechanical systems such as satellites, robotic manipulators, human movement, vehicles, and mechanisms.
