Rooted in classical mechanics, this book explores mechanical and electromagnetic processes occurring in Mechatronics, emphasizing theory, modeling, analysis, and control of gyroscopic devices, including advanced military applications.
This is the final volume of a triad of works by Jan Awrejcewicz (this third book with Zbigniew Koruba) devoted to classical mechanics. Classical Mechanics: Mechanics and Mechatronics presents a unique approach to studying mechanical and electromagnetic processes occurring in applied mechanics and mechatronics with emphasis on theory, modeling, and analysis and control of gyropscopic devices, including military applications. This volume address a wide spectrum of graduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, and instructors from the field of mechanics, this volume, and has a strong focus on advanced applications that will be of particular use and interest to engineers and designers practicing in the mechanical/mechatronic industry.
Chapter 1 deals with dynamics in mechatronic systems. Dynamics of a rigid spherical body is studied in Chapter 2 with emphasis on applications. Chapters 3 and 4 are dedicated to the theory, evolution, and dynamics and control of the gyroscope and Chapter 5 focuses on gyroscopic control in the self-guidance systems of flying objects.
Preface.- List of Symbols.- 1. Dynamics in Mechatronic Systems.- 2. Equations of Motion of a Rigid Spherical Body.- 3. Theory of Gyroscopes.- 4. Dynamics and Control of a Gyroscope.- 5. Gyroscopic Control in Self-Guidance Systems of Flying Objects._

This is the last book of three devoted to Mechanics, and uses the theoretical background presented in Classical Mechanics: Kinematics and Statics and Classical Mechanics: Dynamics. It focuses on exhibiting a unique approach, rooted in the classical mechanics, to study mechanical and electromagnetic processes occurring in Mechatronics. Contrary to the majority of the books devoted to Applied Mechanics, this volume places a particular emphasis on theory, modeling, analysis, and control of gyroscopic devices, including the military applications. This volume provides practicing mechanical/mechatronic engineers and designers, researchers, graduate and postgraduate students with a knowledge of mechanics focused directly on advanced applications.
