MAE 511 Advanced Dynamics with Applications to Aerospace Systems
 

Basic topics in advanced dynamics, including rotating coordinate systems, Euler angles, three-dimensional kinematics and kinetics, angular momentum methods and an introduction to analytical mechanics. The advanced dynamics topics presented can be used to model the dynamics of engineering systems undergoing rotation and/or translation, such as aerospace vehicles, land-based vehicles, ships, submarines, wind turbines, biomechanical systems, machine tools, and robotic systems. 3 credit hours.
