Synopsis

Dynamics of Flexible Multibody Systems Rigid Finite Element Method by Edmund Wittbrodt, Iwona (University of Bielsko-Biala) Adamiec-Wojcik, Stanislaw Wojciech

A new approach is presented in this book for modelling multi-body systems, which constitutes a substantial enhancement of the Rigid Finite Element method. The new approach is based on homogeneous transformations and joint coordinates. Apart from its simple physical interpretation and easy computer implementation, the method is also valuable for educational purposes since it impressively illustrates the impact of mechanical features on the mathematical model.

Reviews

From the reviews:

The book by Edmund Wittbrodt and coworkers introduces an alternative approach to flexible multibody dynamics. ... Overall, the book is a comprehensive and systematic presentation of the rigid finite element method. The presented method is straightforward and particularly attractive for multibody applications where flexible bodies need to be taken into account ... . It can be recommended for graduate students as well as for engineers working in the field. (Bernd Simeon, Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 87 (5), 2007)

This is a monograph on the foundations of engineering mechanics. ... The book is well written and should be of interest and use to students and practitioners in this ever broadening field of computational mechanics. (Ronald L. Huston, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1101 (3), 2007)

Megan Olwen William

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Sophia Upton

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

Insightful reader reviews and unbiased recommendations. I don't know how I chose books before Lovereading! An essential for all book lovers.
