Computer-Aided Analysis of Mechanical Systems
In this book, students will learn the basic concepts and methods to solve numerical that are significant in the mechanics. The methods explained are also useful to build computer programs to evaluate the response of simple and tough systems. Usually equations of motion are created in these programs which are then numerically solved. As they are easy to use, the students will get help in Cartesian coordinates for developing the equation of motion. It serves as a laying step to develop the equations for motion in the coordinate sets. The numerical algorithms that are explained in this book are applicable on the equations of motion and they can be used in any coordinate system.
The book content is useful for teaching as well as self – practice. The facts and numerical formulas that are significant for kinematics are well handled before the facts and methods of dynamics. Individual chapters on each chapter allows the use of text in the study of every topic. The initial chapters introduce the computational methods for kinematics as well as dynamics. The concepts are explained by using the easy examples that students can easily learn how a problem can be made by using any coordinate systems.
