Orbital Mechanics: For Engineering Students

 
9780080971902: Orbital Mechanics: For Engineering Students

Orbital mechanics is a cornerstone subject for aerospace engineering students. However, with its basis in classical physics and mechanics, it can be a difficult and weighty subject. Howard Curtis-Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle University, the US's #1 rated undergraduate aerospace school-focuses on what students at undergraduate and taught masters level really need to know in this hugely valuable text. Fully supported by the analytical features and computer based tools required by today's students, it brings a fresh, modern, accessible approach to teaching and learning orbital mechanics. A truly essential new resource.

Book Description:

From classical mechanics to spaceflight, this is the only orbital mechanics book students need

From the Back Cover:

Orbital Mechanics for Engineering Students is a foundation text for this cornerstone aerospace subject. It offers a rigorous and contemporary introduction to the physical phenomena and analytical procedures required to understand and predict the behaviour of orbiting spacecraft. Structured to cover the requirements of one and two semester courses in orbital mechanics, it is also a springboard to more advanced study.

Key Features:
· Straightforward teach-by-example approach
· Assumes no prior experience; delivers the detail to ensure that concepts are grasped on the first reading, leaving nothing to the reader’s imagination
· Supported by an unusually large number of worked examples, computer-based tools and extensive end of chapter exercises

Written for undergraduate students of aerospace engineering, astronautical engineering, engineering mechanics and engineering physics who have completed first courses in physics, vector dynamics and mathematics (through to differential equations and linear algebra), it will also be appropriate for graduate students new to the subject. The book otherwise assumes no previous experience and is self-contained. All of the required basic dynamics principles are developed in detail so that neither student nor instructor will have to refer to other sources.

Dr Howard D. Curtis, an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and a licensed Professional Engineer, is Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Florida, USA.
