Planar Multibody Dynamics: Formulation, Programming, and Applications, Second Edition enhances the quality and ease of design education with extensive use of the latest computerized design tools combined with coverage of classical design and dynamics of machinery principles. Using clear, concise language, the text introduces fundamental theories, computational methods, and program development for analyzing simple to complex mechanical systems. MATLAB (R) is used throughout, with examples begin with basic commands before introducing students to more advanced programming techniques. The routines developed in each chapter come together to form complete programs for different types of analysis.
