Publisher Synopsis

'Dynamics: Theory and Application of Kane's Method is a timely update of the now classical book by Kane and Levinson by two authors, collectively with many decades of experience stretching across academia and government laboratories. While providing coverage of a broader class of problems and of recent advances in the field, the rigor and clarity of the original text is retained. This new book will be welcomed by many working on dynamics and control of complex mechanical and aerospace multibody systems.' Olivier A. Bauchau, Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics Read more...
