On some important problems in analytical dynamics of non-holonomic systems

  • Liang Li-fu
  • Shi Zhi-fei


By using deductive method, Chetaev condition is derived in this paper. We point out that the processes of variation and differentiation are not permutable in non-holonomic dynamics is a misunderstanding. The paper gives two, classical relations of non-holonomic systems and points out integral variational principles can be applied in non-holonomic systems.

Key words

analytical dynamics variational principle non-holonomic systems the deductive metho Chetaev condition constraint force
