Applied Mechanics Dynamics
by G. W. Housner, D. E. Hudson
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 1980
Number of pages: 399
This is a textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies and applications of dynamics. The main emphasis of the book is on particle and rigid-body dynamics, although some other aspects of the subject have been included to show how the methods of classical mechanics are applied to the various branches of engineering science.

The book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. The author sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective.

Analytical dynamics studies the motions of material bodies due to the mutual interactions with the aid of mathematical analysis. Here is a famous book on mathematical mechanics, a comprehensive account of the classical results of analytical dynamics.

This is an engineering statics and dynamics text intended as both an introduction and as a reference. The book emphasizes use of vectors, free-body diagrams, momentum and energy balance and computation. Intuitive approaches are discussed throughout.
