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.
Provides the reader with recent achievements in advanced applied mechanics and mechantronics
Includes direct engineering-oriented applications of gyroscopes
Contains numerous examples supported by color figures, illustrating theoretical concepts with computational examples¿
