Dynamics (Applied Mechanics - Moving Systems):
Newtonian mechanics of particles, a system of particles and of rigid bodies in fixed and moving reference frames in three dimensions. Topics include energy and momentum concepts, Euler’s equations, and the simple oscillator. With applications to mechanical systems. 1 - Students will be able to explain the fundamental principles of engineering dynamics. 2 - They will apply these principles to solve complex-realistic-engineering problems. 3 - Many problems will require the students to make appropriate estimations and justify all assumptions to define a specific problem statement or design a structure. 4 - Students will present engineering solutions clearly in both written and oral settings. 5 – Utilize Matlab and Dynamic Designer to analyze complex systems and test alternate designs. 6 – Students will work in small teams to solve more complex open-ended problems and evaluate the solutions proposed by other teams.
