Learning Objectives:

The course is the continuation of Engineering Mechanics III. The goal is to understand the spatial motion of a rigid body. This includes both kinematics as well as dynamics. In a second part an introduction into analytic mechanics is given. The third part deals with vibration of simple one or two degrees of freedom systems.


  • spatial kinematics of a rigid body, Euler angles, angular velocity using Euler angles
  • Euler equations, inertia tensor, kinetic energy of a rigid body, free and forced gyroscopes
  • systems of rigid bodies
  • principle of d'Alembert, Lagrange's equations of the first and second kind, generalized coordinates
  • free and forced vibration of one degree freedom systems, frequency response, vibration of multi degree of freedom systems, vibration absorption
