Course Description

295-Review of Engineering Dynamics, Part 1: Kinematics of Particles and Rigid Bodies

It is common in engineering analysis and design to deal with systems in motion. Dynamics is the study of systems in motion. This course discusses the essential topics that every engineer should know about the field of engineering dynamics. Example problems are provided throughout the course, and the focus primarily on topics relating to engineering applications. Part 1 of the course will focus on kinematics of particles and rigid bodies, while part 2 will cover kinetics of particles and rigid bodies.

Dynamics can be a difficult topic. Most of the confusion stems from the idea that there are many ways to solve any given dynamics problem. This course will outline a systematic approach to solving dynamics problems. Following the step-by-step process presented in this course will help you to quickly determine the appropriate equations to use for any problem relating to engineering dynamics.

It is helpful to have a very basic understanding of derivatives, especially simple derivatives of polynomials. A review section is provided in the course to cover the essential calculus topics for the course.

This course covers basic undergraduate engineering concepts in kinematics of particles and rigid body plane motion. The author did an excellent job summarizing those concepts for the intended audience. Since my professional specialty relates to mechanical engineering dynamics and control systems up through the advanced levels, this was an easy course for me. If you don't have a background in this area, or you've forgotten what you supposedly learned in school, then you might struggle a little more than I did. However, the material is very well laid out and easy to follow. I only found a couple of instances where there was some ambiguity. For example, one instance was the slider-crank in example #10, where it would have been helpful if the author had drawn the reference frame in the figure, so that it was clear what directions he was assuming positive, although I figured that out quickly by studying the signed quantities in the vector equations. Overall, I thought this course was well done, and I give it the highest rating.

Good review of dynamics. Before taking course ,one should review some basic calculus and vector operations.
