Dynamics of Mechanical Systems
by Janusz Krodkiewski
Number of pages: 199
The purpose of this text is to provide the students with the theoretical background of the three dimensional mechanics of rigid body and its applications to engineering problems existing in mechanical systems. As most of the engineering subjects this part of mechanics is presented in three parts: Modelling, Analysis and Experimental Investigations.

We shall describe the advances that took place after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

The book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. The author sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective.
