This text is a modern vector oriented treatment of classical dynamics and its application to engineering problems. Based on Ginsberg's Advanced Engineering Dynamics Second Edition, it develops a broad spectrum of kinematical concepts, which provide the framework for formulations of kinetics principles following the Newton-Euler and analytical approaches. This fresh treatment features many expanded and new derivations, with an emphasis on both breadth and depth and a focus on making the subject accessible to individuals from a broad range of backgrounds.
Jerry Ginsberg joined the faculty of Purdue University in 1969, and the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1980. He became the first Woodruff Chair in Mechanical Systems in 1988. In 1994 he was named the Georgia Tech Distinguished Professor, the Institute's highest award. Professor Ginsberg's activities include seminal contributions in...
