A Concise Approach to Dynamics

A Concise Approach to Dynamics

This user-friendly text shows how to use concise illustrations and college mathematics to understand and analyze fascinating dynamic phenomena in our everyday lives. Rather than providing a wide variety of disconnected topics in the field of dynamics, this book shows how these topics are fundamentally related and positioned in a framework. It also demonstrates how simple concepts can be derived and expanded to complicated design formulae for engineering structures. Among the mechanical topics included in the book are coordinate systems, rectilinear motion, curvilinear motion, angular motion, general motion, force and moment equilibrium, the principle of linear impulse and momentum, the principle of angular impulse and momentum, and the principle of work and energy.


Tzuyang Yu, PhD, is Full Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, having received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008. He teaches undergraduate-level Dynamics to sophomores and juniors, and graduate-level Structural Dynamics to Master’s and doctoral students. His areas of expertise include vibration-based damage detection and structural health monitoring, concrete materials, electromagnetic modelling and measurement of construction materials, and synthetic aperture radar imaging of concrete structures.
