Dynamics

CET325

Analysis of particle and rigid body motion in two and three dimensions. Kinematics of translation and rotation; use of force/mass/acceleration and work/energy methods; and impulse, momentum, and collision of elastic bodies. Strong emphasis on the engineering significance of these principles, with special emphasis on structures. Computer applications to civil engineering problem solutions. (Formerly CET348) 3 Credits (3 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): CET230 and MTH242. Spring Only.
