Dynamics by Prof. George Haller

Dynamics by Prof. George Haller

This course reviews momentum and energy principles, and then covers the following topics: Hamilton's principle and Lagrange's equations; three-dimensional kinematics and dynamics of rigid bodies, steady motions and small deviations therefrom, gyroscopic effects, and causes of instability, free and forced vibrations of lumped-parameter and continuous systems; nonlinear oscillations and the phase plane, nonholonomic systems, and an introduction to wave propagation in continuous systems.
