Elementary Dynamics: a textbook for engineers
by Joseph Whittington Landon
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1920
Number of pages: 268
In the following pages an attempt has been made to present the principles of elementary dynamics, and to explain the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible. By continually having to think of the principle and the physical quantities involved, the student gradually acquires the true meaning of them, and they become real to him.

Set of lecture notes for an upper-division classical dynamics course: oscillations, Keplerian orbits, two-body scattering, rotation of rigid bodies in three dimensions, Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics, and coupled oscillations.

A rigorous theoretical and mathematical description of the motion of spinning bodies and practical applications where their gyroscopic properties are used. The book goes into great detail on the theory, design and implementation of applications.

Textbook for engineering students who wish to prepare for more advanced studies of dynamics. The emphasis is on particle and rigid-body dynamics. The book shows how the classical mechanics methods are applied to the various branches of engineering.
