Advanced Engineering Systems in Motion: Dynamics of Three Dimensional 3D Motion

Course Description

Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion. This course is an advanced study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. You will study the dynamics of rigid bodies in 3D motion, consisting of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time.
