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


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

of Mechanical 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 complex robotic and bio-systems. A careful presentation that balances theory, , and applications gives readers a working of configuration , 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 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/ analyses. Ultimately, it prepares them to solve real-world and make future advances in mechanisms, manipulators, and robotics.
