This program covers the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics, including kinematics, movement relative to accelerated address frames, work as well as energy, impulse as well as momentum, 2D and additionally 3D stiff body dynamics. The program pays particular attention to applications in aerospace engineering such as introductory subjects in orbital technicians, flight dynamics, inertial navigation and also attitude dynamics.
Degrees of freedom and constraints, rectilinear motion
Vectors, matrices and coordinate transformations
Curvilinear motion; Cartesian coordinates
