This is the second volume of three books devoted to Mechanics. In this book, dynamical and advanced mechanics problems are stated, illustrated, and discussed, including a few novel concepts in comparison to standard text books and monographs. Apart from being addressed to a wide spectrum of graduate students, postgraduate students, researchers, and teachers from the fields of mechanical and civil engineering, this volume is also intended to be used as a self-contained material for applied mathematicians and physical scientists and researchers.
Provides the reader with a step-by-step introduction to the material, enabling them to learn quicklyMakes a bridge between theoretical (physics) and applied (engineering) classical mechanicsContains numerous examples supported by color figures, illustrating various theoretical concepts
