This new book from Michael Spektor provides solutions for 96 linear differential equations of motion that describe common mechanical engineering problems in dynamics. These equations comprise all possible combinations of parameters that can be included in the differential equations of motion describing actual engineering systems. A special Guiding Table directs readers to the section of the book with the solution corresponding to the real-life problems of their interest. It is vital reference for students and professionals who are solving problems in Engineering Dynamics.
Includes the analysis of the structure of the differential equation of motion, as well as the analysis of the parameters that constitute this equation, presented in Chapter 1, enabling readers to understand the principles of composing the differential equation of motion for actual engineering systems.
Presents a straightforward, universal methodology for solving linear differential equations of motion based on the fundamentals of Laplace Transform.
Provides Guiding Table 2.1, which uses the combination of resisting and active forces to guide readers to the section of the book that corresponds to the problems they want to solve. This table is also found on the inside front cover.
Each section represents a standalone description of the solutions. There is no need to search through the book for additional information.
Contains all required methodologies and supplemental information for solving the linear differential equations of motion.
