ME 7320 - Intermediate Dynamics


Credits: 3

Emphasizes methods of formulation and solution of the kinematical, dynamical, and motion constraint equations for three-dimensional, lumped-parameter, dynamical systems. Detailed discussions on differentiation of vectors, kinematics, inertia properties, momentum and energy principles, generalized forces, holonomic and nonholonomic constraints, constrained generalized coordinates, and Newton-Euler and Lagrange formulations of the equations of motion. The symbolic software Mathematica is used to reduce the time and effort required to derive the kinematical and dynamical equations. Practical examples of detailed motion analysis of mechanisms using CAD software to augment the theoretical formulations. Prerequisites: ME 2320/CEE 2320, MATH 3302, and MATH 3313; or graduate standing.
