Planar Multibody Dynamics: Formulation, Programming, and Applications

Planar Multibody Dynamics: Formulation, Programming, and Applications

Written for undergraduates, graduate students, and practicing engineers in the mechanical and aerospace fields, this book introduces fundamental theories, computational methods, and program development for analyzing simple to complex planar mechanical systems. The analytical and computational topics are organized around practical application examples, and the author repeats several examples to provide readers with a basis for comparison between different formulations. Topics covered include multibody mechanical systems, types of analyses, methods of formation, and computer programming using MATLAB.

MATLAB is used throughout the book to solve real world application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
