Engineering System in Motion: Dynamics of Particles and Bodies in 2D Motion
This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. We will study the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in rigid planar (2D) motion, which will consist 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. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.
How You Will Benefit
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to understand the fundamentals of the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures; the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in planar (2D) motion; and the kinematics and kinetics of motion.
To be successful in the course, you will need to have mastered basic engineering mechanics concepts and to have successfully completed the following two courses: Introduction to Engineering Mechanics and Applications in Engineering Mechanics. We will apply many of the engineering fundamentals learned in those classes, so you will need those skills before attempting this course.
