Course specific prerequisites

Basic courses in mechanics and mathematics

Aim

Many machines, such as cars and robots, exhibit much more complicated
three-dimensional motion than those treated in basic courses in mechanics.
Many degrees-of-freedom, complicated constraints, three-dimensional
rotations, coupled oscillations and stability problems are among the
complications that may occur. In the course the tools needed to analyse such
problems are introduced. Apart from analytical methods, also
software for simulating complicated dynamical systems is introduced. The
course includes a larger, more real world project that continues during the
whole course, and which together with the numerical simulations give a pass
on the whole course.

Content

Advanced kinematics: generalized coordinates, rotation matrices, relative motion, constraints. Newton's and Lagrange's equations for three-dimensional dynamics of rigid bodies and systems. Gyroscopic motion, linearisation, stability, coupled oscillations, modal analysis. Introduction to simulation software.

Organisation

Lectures, problem-solving sessions and computer labs with ADAMS. A larger project runs through the whole course.

Literature

Compendium in swedish.

Examination

Written exam and/or the project.
