I will teach basics and applications of analytical mechanics emphasizing variation principle of statics, variation principle of dynamics, and method of variation. These issues will be applied to mechanics of rigid body systems and vibration, which are important topics in mechatoronics.

1st | Introduction to Analytical Mechanics | |

2nd | Review of Newton Mechanics | |

3rd | Motion of Rigid Bodies | |

4th | Principle of Virtual Works (Variation Principle in Statics) | |

5th | d'Alembert's Principle | |

6th | Generalized Coordinates | |

7th | Langrange's Equation of Motion | |

8th | Method of Variation | |

9th | Constrained Variation Issues | |

10th | Hamilton's Principle (Variation Principle in Dynamics) | |

11th | Application to Vibration | |

12th | Longitudinal Vibration of Rod | |

13th | Application to Rigid Body Systems | |

14th | Motion Equation of Rigid Body Systems | |

15th | (Examination) |
