MET 405 - Dynamics
Course Description: MET 405: Dynamics: In this course the motion of
a particle and its associated forces and accelerations will be
analyzed. The analytic techniques covered will include conservation
of energy, impulse momentum and work methods. D'Alembert's principle
for the motion of rigid bodies will be studied, plus rotational
dynamics, and critical shaft speeds. Prerequisite: Departmental
mathematics requirements. (3,0) 3 credits.
Textbook: Vector Mechanics for Engineers, Dynamics, 4th edition,
Ferdinand P. Beer, McGraw-Hill Publishing Company
To introduce students to the principals of mechanics and on their
application to the solution of design engineering problems
Note: Homework problems Will be assigned form textbook, and possible an additional take home test.
