Intermediate Dynamics: Complemented with Simulations and Animations (Engineering)by M. R. M. Crespo Da Silva
Synopses & Reviews
Crespo da Silva's Intermediate Dynamics: Complemented with Simulations and Animations offers a unique approach, based on a strong problem-solving methodology and use of computer software for problem modeling, visualization and solution. Dynamics concepts are developed progressively, so readers can follow the natural flow of topics, from basic to more advanced. Later chapters cover Lagrangian dynamics and vibrations/oscillations of systems, for courses that advance to this level.
Reviewers have praised the book for its excellent problems and examples, that effectively link dynamics concepts with engineering applications. The inclusion of MATLAB and Simulink provides a vehicle for showing modern computer usage, problem modeling, and visualizations of dynamics concepts.
A bound-in CD ROM with Simulink routines is included, and a Book Website has full solutions to all chapter problems, links to professional websites, and other student and instructor resources.
