About the Authors
  • Suitable for both senior-level and first-year graduate courses, this fully revised edition provides a unique and systematic treatment of engineering dynamics that covers Newton–Euler and Lagrangian approaches. New to this edition are: two completely revised chapters on the constraints on, and potential energies for, rigid bodies, and the dynamics of systems of particles and rigid bodies; clearer discussion on coordinate singularities and their relation to mass matrices and configuration manifolds; additional discussion of contravariant basis vectors and dual Euler basis vectors, as well as related works in robotics; improved coverage of navigation equations; inclusion of a 350-page solutions manual for instructors, available online; a fully updated reference list. Numerous structured examples, discussion of various applications, and exercises covering a wide range of topics are included throughout, and source code for exercises, and simulations of systems are available online.

    'This book is unusual amongst dynamics books in that it treats rotation as an operator, a tensor, which acts on vectors. The more common approach in other books is to treat rotation, indirectly, as a matrix used for a change of coordinates. O'Reilly's rotation-is-a-tensor approach is common in continuum mechanics and is, I think, simply better. It allows direct derivation of the various component formulas without notational tricks.' Andy Ruina, Cornell University
