Applied Mechanics Dynamics
by G. W. Housner, D. E. Hudson
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 1980
Number of pages: 399
This is a textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies and applications of dynamics. The main emphasis of the book is on particle and rigid-body dynamics, although some other aspects of the subject have been included to show how the methods of classical mechanics are applied to the various branches of engineering science.
