EN40 Dynamics and Vibrations

Spring 2020


Allan Bower, Jimmy Xu


A broad introduction to Newtonian dynamics of particles and rigid bodies with applications to engineering design. Concepts include kinematics and dynamics of particles and rigid bodies; conservation laws; vibrations of single degree of freedom systems; and use of MATLAB to solve equations of motion and optimize engineering designs. Examples of applications are taken from all engineering disciplines. Lectures, recitation, and team design projects, including use of Brown Design Workshop. Prerequisite: ENGN 0030. Corequisite: MATH 0020 or 0180 (if you meet these pre or co-reqs in other ways you can request a registration over-ride by filling out this form)
