Dynamics of Mechanical Systems – C. T. F. Ross – 1st Edition


Adopting a step by step methodical , the book is aimed at first and second year undergraduates and addresses the mathematical difficulties faced by them.

of Systems provides a vehicle for mastering all of this. Focusing on the fundamental procedures behind dynamic analyses, the authors take a vector-oriented approach and lead readers methodically from simple concepts and systems through the analysis of robotic and bio-systems. A careful presentation that balances theory, , and applications gives readers a working of configuration graphs, Euler parameters, partial velocities and partial angular velocities, generalized speeds and forces, lower body arrays, and Kane’s equations.

Evolving from more than three decades of teaching upper-level engineering courses, Dynamics of Mechanical Systems enables readers to obtain and refine skills ranging from the ability to perform insightful hand analyses to developing algorithms for numerical/computer analyses. Ultimately, it prepares them to solve real-world and make future advances in mechanisms, manipulators, and robotics.
