Course Description:
This Dynamics course is an example-oriented course, consisting of many examples one-by-one throughout the semester. In other words, this course will, through examples, introduce the fundamental concepts and theories about dynamics, thinking processes and techniques for solving dynamical problems, as well as computer programming techniques for simulating dynamical problems.
One of the focuses of this course is that, after solving each dynamical problem and obtaining the associated equations of motion, we will introduce computer programming techniques for simulating each dynamical problem and getting the associated animation. By using this way, students can see real, vivid pictures of dynamical problems like what we see and perceive in the real world, but not just abstract mathematical equations. The goal of the dynamics discipline, after all, is to understand how to apply mechanics and mathematics to describe moving objects in the universe, all of which have real and vivid pictures. Therefore, through computer simulations, students not only can get real and vivid pictures as well as better feelings for dynamics, but also can learn techniques of using computer programming to solve engineering problems.
The examples in this course involve dynamical problems in particle dynamics, rigid body dynamics, Lagrange’s equations and Hamilton’s principle. However, please note that, this course will not cover topics about quantum dynamics and quantum effects, and will only study the motion of objects that are large enough to be seen by naked eyes.

Course Objective:
Understand the fundamental concepts and theories about dynamics, thinking processes and techniques for solving dynamical problems, as well as computer programming techniques for simulating dynamical problem through examples.

Prerequisite courses:
calculus, engineering mathematics and fundamentals of physics
