MAE 2320: Dynamics
Credits: 3
Kinematic and kinetic aspects of motion modeling applied to rigid bodies and mechanisms. Focus on free-body-analysis. Use of work-energy and impulse-momentum motion prediction methods. Use of Cartesian and simple non-Cartesian coordinate systems. Rotational motion, angular momentum, and rotational kinetic-energy modeling; body mass rotational moment of inertia. Relative-velocity and acceleration. Prerequisite: MAE 2300
MAE 4501: Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering
Credits: 3
Applies basic engineering science, design methods, and systems analysis to developing areas and current problems in mechanical engineering. Topics vary based on student and faculty interest. Prerequisite: 3rd or 4th year standing.
MAE 6210: Analytical Dynamics
Credits: 3
Classical analytical dynamics from a modern mathematical viewpoint: Newton's laws, dynamical variables, many particle systems; the Lagrangian formulation, constraints and configuration manifolds, tangent bundles, differential manifolds; variational principles, least action; non-potential forces; constrained problems; linear oscillations; Hamiltonian formulation: canonical equations, Rigid body motion. Prerequisite: Undergraduate physics, ordinary differential equations.
SYS 6581: Selected Topics in Systems Engineering
