[4.0 units]

Rigid body mechanics (Rotation parameterization, Newton-Euler equations, inertia tensor), Interconnected bodies (joints, actuators, controllers), Equations of motion (Lagrange’s equations, Lagrange multipliers, body jack, DAEs) and Analyses (kinematic, static, quasi-static, dynamic, kinetostatic, linear-dynamic). Background in vector mechanics, differential equations, numerical methods, linear algebra, MATLAB-Simulink, and Vibrations is strongly recommended.

Prerequisite: ME 140  (may be taken concurrently) and ENGR 151  and MATH 131  Normal Letter Grade only. Discussion, Laboratory included.
