Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

“This book, an original monograph on the dynamics of systems of coupled rigid bodies, presents, for the first time in mechanics, a comprehensive treatment of the principles of systems dynamics. It considers mechanical systems that play a major role in the construction of engineering objects. … In the conclusion of the book, the author considers the application of the modeling of systems of rigid bodies in various scientific fields. … This book should be of great interest to physicists and engineers.” (Gennady Victorovich Gorr, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 b)

From the Back Cover

This textbook gives a clear and thorough presentation of the fundamental principles of mechanical systems and their dynamics. It provides both the theory and applications of mechanical systems in an intermediate theoretical level, ranging from the basic concepts of mechanics, constraint and multibody systems over dynamics of hydraulic systems and power transmission systems to machine dynamics and robotics. The book aims at practicing engineers, researchers and graduate students in mechanical engineering and mechanics. The concept of the book is mainly determined by the experiences of the author. Sixteen years aerospace industry with its forerunner role in all technologies, but also in many fundamentals, twenty years academia in the area of mechanics, especially in the areas of dynamics and control, fundamental research on bilaterally and unilaterally constrained systems, on robotics and walking machines and many applications with regard to practical industrial problems. Both theory and practice were topics of more than eighty dissertations being carried through during his activities as Professor and head of an Institute at the Technical University of Munich.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has a lot of good information. However, sufficient background is needed to make good use of it. Finally, the quality of German-to-English translation is quite poor. For this reason, the book rather difficult to follow.
