9780691135373: Engineering Dynamics: A Comprehensive Introduction

This textbook introduces undergraduate students to engineering dynamics using an innovative approach that is at once accessible and comprehensive. Combining the strengths of both beginner and advanced dynamics texts, this book has students solving dynamics problems from the very start and gradually guides them from the basics to increasingly more challenging topics without ever sacrificing rigor.



Engineering Dynamics spans the full range of mechanics problems, from one-dimensional particle kinematics to three-dimensional rigid-body dynamics, including an introduction to Lagrange's and Kane's methods. It skillfully blends an easy-to-read, conversational style with careful attention to the physics and mathematics of engineering dynamics, and emphasizes the formal systematic notation students need to solve problems correctly and succeed in more advanced courses. This richly illustrated textbook features numerous real-world examples and problems, incorporating a wide range of difficulty; ample use of MATLAB for solving problems; helpful tutorials; suggestions for further reading; and detailed appendixes.



  • Provides an accessible yet rigorous introduction to engineering dynamics

  • Uses an explicit vector-based notation to facilitate understanding

From the Inside Flap:


"There are few courses in the engineering curriculum that cause students more difficulty than rigid-body dynamics. By laying out the foundations of the subject with precision and clarity through unambiguous notation and rigorous definitions, Engineering Dynamics goes a long way toward remedying this situation. Numerous examples with motivating applications demonstrate the underlying ideas and solution techniques. This landmark text stands apart in the field, and will be welcomed by students and instructors alike."--Dennis S. Bernstein, University of Michigan


"Kasdin and Paley provide a thorough and rigorous introduction to engineering dynamics. They hit all the required topics, and also present material not normally addressed by an introductory text. This is an ambitious book and the authors carry it out well. It is in many ways better than almost all other comparable texts."--Geoffrey Shiflett, University of Southern California


About the Author:

N. Jeremy Kasdin is professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and lead investigator for the Terrestrial Planet Finder project at Princeton University. Derek A. Paley is assistant professor of aerospace engineering and director of the Collective Dynamics and Control Laboratory at the University of Maryland.
