Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics
An undergraduate textbook in
mechanics that incorporates Mathematica to explore the basis of
engineering
design. Focuses on conceptually understanding mechanics and
the
transition
from calculations to design concepts. The reader progresses from modeling
freebody diagrams through writing the equations of motion and the
constraint equationsand finally uses Mathematica to help solve
numerical
problems and investigate design parameters. The text enables the reader to
solve
problems
for every angle or dimension.
Chapters include:

Engineering Mechanics: Statics
Undergraduate text that
focuses on the conceptual understanding of the
mechanics of rigid bodies at
rest or moving at constant velocity.
Mathematica is used to model the
concepts of forces and moments. Vector
manipulations and matrix notation in
statics are introduced and solved with
Mathematica. Includes approximately
one thousand problems and 95 worked sample
problems.
Chapters include:
Introduction  Vectors and
Force Systems Acting on a Particle  Rigid Bodies: Equivalent Force
Systems
 Distributed Forces: Centroids and Center of Gravity  Equilibrium of
Rigid
Bodies  Analysis of Structures  Internal Forces in Structural Members 
Friction  Moments of Inertia  Virtual Work  Appendix  Glossary 
Problem
Statements  Index
