Classical Dynamics

Classical dynamics focuses on formulations and solutions of equations of motion for 3D dynamic systems. In this hands-on course, learn about the history and recent developments in math, mechanics, and computation. Employ analytical methods and computational tools to model 3D systems in fields including aerospace, robotics, and biomechanics. Become a 3D vector expert.

Topics Include

  • D'Alembert's principle and equations of motion
  • Rigid bodies
  • Euler angles and direction cosines
  • Accelerating¬†and rotating reference frames
  • Lagrange's equations and their use
  • Dynamic behavior, stability, and small departures from equilibrium
