Analytical Dynamics by Firdaus E. Udwadia

Book Description

Constrained motion is of paramount importance in the design and analysis of mechanical systems and central to the study of analytical dynamics. The problem of constrained motion was first posed over two hundred years ago, and it has been worked on vigorously ever since. This book offers a fresh approach to the subject. Eminently readable, it is written as an introduction to analytical dynamics, with emphasis on fundamental concepts in mechanics. The connection between generalized inverses of matrices and constrained motion is a central theme. The book begins with a description of the motion of a particle subjected to holonomic and nonholonomic constraints and presents explicit equations of motion. Examples are provided throughout the book, and carefully formulated problems at the end of each chapter reinforce the material covered. This computationally appealing approach will be useful to students in engineering and the applied sciences.

Analytical Dynamics by Firdaus E. Udwadia Analytical Dynamics, Paperback (December 2007)

A fresh approach to analytical dynamics. Eminently readable, it is written as an introduction, with an emphasis on fundamental concepts in mechanics.

Dynamics and Control by Firdaus E. Udwadia Dynamics and Control, Hardback (August 1999)

Many of these papers represent significant advances in this area of research, and cover the development of control methods, including the control of dynamical systems subject to mixed constraints on both the control and state variables, and the development of a control design method for flexible manipulators with mismatched uncertainties.
