Dynamics

Overall Course Objectives

To provide the student with a fundamental understanding of phenomena related to dynamics of rigid bodies and mechanical vibrations.

Learning Objectives

  • Draw free-body and kinetic diagrams for plane motion of rigid bodies.
  • Apply vector-description for plane motion of rigid bodies in inertial and non-inertial coordinate systems.
  • State the general plane equations of motion for rigid bodies and systems of rigid bodies and determine linear and angular accelerations.
  • Find center of gravity and mass moment of inertia for simple bodies.
  • Use the principle of linear momentum conservation to solve simple 1D impact problems.
  • Apply the principle of linear momentum conservation for rigid bodies and systems of particles.
  • Apply the principle of angular momentum conservation for rigid bodies and systems of particles.
  • Determine the natural frequency and damping ratio for systems with one degree-of-freedom.
  • Find the response of damped and undamped systems with one degree-of-freedom subjected to a harmonic load.
  • Determine work and power of external forces and couples.
  • Apply work-energy relations for plane motion of rigid bodies.
  • Use the energy method to set up the general equations of motion for particles and rigid bodies.
