Engineering Dynamics – F13

Engineering Dynamics is a Junior level course covering the basics of rigid body dynamics from a context of engineering related problems.

Test will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21 in EIT 322. NOTE THE ROOM CHANGE!
Students traveling to San Diego for the ASME IMECE, Dr. Wright will administer exam on site, so bring your study & test materials with you.

Drop Date: Oct. 17
The first exam will be graded before Oct. 17; however, due to Fall Break, we will not be meeting class before the Drop Date to hand back the test. If you are concerned about your progress in the course, please consult with Dr. Wright to determine where you stand.

Here’s my notes from the graduate version of this class. Some of the material is relevant to this class and we’ll use it as necessary. The equations may not all be readable due to a printer reformat glitch, so caveat emptorPDF
