MEC205 Dynamics 1


We live in a dynamic world. Most Mechanical Engineering systems include components and mechanisms that are in motion e.g. the movement of a piston in an engine which results in the propulsion of the vehicle. The principles of dynamics underpin your engineering degree. This course follows on from the Engineering Statics course, and considers systems that are not in equilibrium i.e. with velocity and/or acceleration. The course reviews basic concepts and develops a number of theories and principles to assist in the analysis of the motion of particles, bodies, interconnected bodies, mechanisms and geared systems.
