Engineering Mechanics (Dynamics), By: R.C.
Hibbeler, 11th edition,
Prentice hall.

Course Description
:

This course is intended to strengthen the students' capabilities in analyzing forces and torques
and their effects on rigid bodies including velocity and acceleration polygons of links and
mechanisms, Coriolos acceleration, center of percussion, impact, mo
ment of inertia and free
body diagrams. This course will also introduce the student to the vibration phenomenon and its
importance in mechatronics and mechanical engineering as well as in structural systems. This
course will introduce to the student the ma
thematical modeling of dynamic systems, vibration
systems, its analysis and control.

Course Objectives:

The primary objective in teaching mechanics is to help the student develop his ability to apply the
principles of force and acceleration, work and
energy, impulse and momentum and conservation
of angular momentum to analyze the motion of rigid bodies under the effect of forces and torques,
in addition to study free and forced vibrations of mechanical systems.
