"You have succeeded in breathing new life into a very old subject that hasn't much changed since the apple fell off the tree. I didn't think that anyone could do anything significantly different with a new dynamics text." - Warren White, Kansas State University "Beautifully crafted, with great attention to the presentation and motivation from the student's perspective." - John Gardner, Boise State University "I've reviewed one other Dynamics text. I fell asleep twice while reading it. I can't say the same about this book. I didn't yawn once. I will never forget his discussion of the slug. Outstanding!" - Joseph Slater, Wright State University Engineering success starts here. Your coursework in engineering mechanics helps you develop key analytical skills that you will rely on throughout your subsequent coursework and career. That's why Tongue and Sheppard's Dynamics: Analysis and Design of Systems in Motion, and their accompanying volume, Statics: Analysis and Design of Systems in Equilibrium, focus on helping you build the skills and knowledge you need to succeed. Drawing free body diagrams starts here. The authors continuously emphasize the importance of communicating solutions through graphics. They focus on drawing correct free body diagrams and inertial response diagrams through an innovative illustration program. Strong problem-solving skills start here. Sheppard and Tongue introduce a consistent analysis procedure early in the text, and use it throughout, including all worked examples. This problem-solving methodology helps you develop the skills needed to apply these principles systematically in your analysis of mechanics problems. The complexities of engineered systems starts here. Innovative real-world case studies and system analysis exercises expose you to the complexities of engineered systems. The text shows how to simplify and model the system to perform analysis, and introduces some basic design issues through exercises, inviting you to suggest a better way to solve the problem.
