M E 364D M E 364D. Intermediate Dynamics. 3 Hours.

Focuses on efficient formulation and solution of equations of motion for complex 3D multi-body mechanical systems. Emphasizes the formulation of the dynamical equations of motion using Kane's method and will use symbolic and numerical simulation techniques (MATLAB(R) and MotionGenesis) to solve these equations. Preparation for advanced research and professional work analyzing the dynamics of complex multi-body mechanical systems. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Mechanical Engineering 364D and 379M (Topic: Intermediate Dynamics) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Upper-division standing and the following courses with a grade of at least a C-: Mechanical Engineering 314D or equivalent and 318M or equivalent.
