The course emphasizes the classical dynamics of single- and multi-degree-of-freedom systems made up of particles, rigid-objects in 2 and 3 spatial dimensions. Three approaches are used: the Newton-Euler and Lagrangian approach, both using minimal coordinates, and also a 'maximal coordinate' approach using differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The course emphasizes finding equations of motion, solving them analytically (if possible) and numerically; and graphical presentation of solutions, including animations.
When Offered Fall.
