Course: ARO 406: Advanced Dynamics and Vibrations of Aerospace Systems (4 units)
Description: This course is intended to provide a basic knowledge of dynamics of aerospace systems. You will obtain an appreciation for vector dynamics, particle and rigid-body dynamics, linear and angular momentum, Lagrangian dynamics, free and forced vibration of discrete and continuous systems, random vibration and response. You will practice skills in engineering analysis and problem solving by both hand analysis and the MATLAB® computer program.
