Product Description

Book Description

This book fits two full-length courses in advanced engineering dynamics. It contains two overlapping tracks. During the first course a Newton-Euler approach is used, followed by a Lagrangian approach. The text includes structured chapter exercises as a study aid. Solutions can be performed in simulation using MATLAB® or Mathematica®.

About the Author

Oliver M. O'Reilly is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests lie in continuum mechanics and nonlinear dynamics, specifically in the dynamics of rigid bodies and particles, Cosserat and directed continua, dynamics of rods, history of mechanics, and vehicle dynamics. O'Reilly is the author of numerous archival publications and of Engineering Dynamics: A Primer.

a model of good engineering textbook writing 1 Jan 2009
By tech book guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a very well-written textbook on mechanics written by an authority in the field. To be frank, most of the newer texts on mechanics for engineers I have come across fall short of the mark for various reasons. Also, many new books are rushed to press and contain numerous typos. This book is an exception. Highly recommended for engineers who really want to know the deep connection between Newtonian and Lagrangian dynamics. Excellent!
Excellent book, but requires a intellectually mature audience 3 Oct 2014
By Far-from-Equilibrium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent book, but requires a intellectually mature audience. The more applied engineer looking for quick tools will hate it. The thoughtful engineer looking for unifying views and the big picture will be begging for the author to write a more advanced follow-on.

The essential text on the subject. 10 Jan 2014
By Hani Esmaeili - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
O'Reilly is the go-to guy for dynamics. I'm no autodidact, but this book is so well-laid/thought out that it makes learning the subject extremely easy.
