Course Objectives: The goal of EGM 3400/3401 is to teach you the fundamental concepts of rigid body kinematics and dynamics with an emphasis on the modeling, analysis, and simulation of how forces produce motion of rigid body systems. For EGM 3400 students, the emphasis will be on manual derivation of the governing equations, while for EGM 3401 students, an additional emphasis will be on numerical simulation of dynamic systems using equations derived with the aid of symbol manipulation software. This course is required for undergraduates in the College of Engineering and is a pre-requisite for several advanced courses in mechanical and aerospace engineering. By the end of this course, EGM 3400 students should be able to: Model, introduce mathematical identifiers, analyze, and interpret dynamic systems Understand the roles of analytical methods and computational tools Develop intuition about the time-dependent nature of dynamic systems In addition, EGM 3401 students should be able to: Create and run simulation programs with professional software Gain physical insight into basic principles using computer experiments 3. Contribution of course to meeting the professional component: 4A. EGM 4300/4301 supports several program outcomes enumerated in the Mission Statement of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specific ME and AE program outcomes supported by this course include: (1) Apply knowledge of chemistry and calculus based physics with depth in at least one of them (ME Program Outcome M1 and AE Program Outcome A1); (2) Apply knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations (ME Program Outcome M2 and AE Program Outcome A2); (2) Apply statistics and linear algebra (ME Program Outcome M3 and AE Program Outcome A3). 4B.
