Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MES)


The formulation of the inertia and external forces appearing at any of the elements of a multibody system, in terms of the dependent coordinates that describe their position, velocity, and acceleration, is of fundamental importance for the solution of the dynamic analysis.
