for vectors and some vector multiplications, transformation
matrix, rotation operator, inertia matrix. Hamiltonís Principle
and Lagrage equations. Examples: eq. of motion of airplanes
incl. gyroscopic effects, wind fields, rotating earth. 3D inertia
calculations. Gyroscopic instruments. Spin and inertia coupling.
Helicopter rotor dynamics.
Alternative methods to derive equations of motion. How to linearise equations of motion. Simulations using equations of motion.
Study Goals
Improving the skills of modelling and deriving the equations
of motion for complex 3D dynamic systems.
Completing the Mechanics methods: writing component equations using vector algebra, recently developed
matrix methods suited for symbolic manipulation software
