Course Description
This course is an introduction to the dynamics and vibrations of lumpedparameter models of mechanical systems. Topics covered include kinematics, forcemomentum formulation for systems of particles and rigid bodies in planar motion, workenergy concepts, virtual displacements and virtual work. Students will also become familiar with the following topics: Lagrange’s equations for systems of particles and rigid bodies in planar motion, and linearization of equations of motion. After this course, students will be able to evaluate free and forced vibration of linear multidegree of freedom models of mechanical systems and matrix eigenvalue problems.
