The purpose of this course is to ensure that the student has a firm grasp of the fundamentals of analytical dynamics and 3D rigid body motion.
The course will extend the student’s knowledge of dynamics into areas not covered or covered only briefly at the undergraduate level, e.g., Lagrange’s equations, D’Alembert’s principle, quasi-velocities, phase plane analysis. In summary, we will discuss ways of
Develop an applied understanding of state-space representations for linear time invariant multi-input multi-output dynamic systems in both time domain and frequency domain. Introduction to modern state-space control methods; state feedback and output feedback. Realistic design problems with numerical simulations of practical implementations.
