Book pages are almost falling out of the hard cover? Now I’m just glad I caught this now because I would’ve been responsible to it. I need this book for my class so it’s very necessary and still useful, but what do I do with this? Can I be sent another so I’m not to blame when it falls all the method out? I’m not happy.
This text requires MatLab, not very practical. The author FAILS in elaborating and setting up the example problems. For example in the Laplace Transformation, Integration by parts is obvious, he fails to shown further derivation although it is fairly obvious for some students calculus can be difficult but with shown steps students can learn as they go through the text. My professor did not teach and should be fired regardless of tenure so a lot of students had to learn it by themselves. This was the only text for the course and I honestly couldn't search another text of system dynamics that I could obtain a keep of quickly enough to master the material. In my opinion this book is a amazing resources if MatLab is available wherever you may be whether it's in higher education or in the field. Therefore to sum this rant, this text is amazing if used with MatLab but FAILS if you haven't brushed up with mathematics and are trying to learn it on your own. Amazing luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
It's cool having nav application on tablet. But I think that it should be flexible to present field on document line (scroll should be active for such document lines). So it's not locked by screen size, user can still see other field in document lines using scroll.
Book isn't simple to follow or understand and seems to be a much higher level of expertise than should be needed for a bachelors level psychology class. This is not the vendors fault by any means, delivery and ease of rental was a breeze, the book just basically sucked!
I have mixed feelings about this book because I learned so much from it but it has so a lot of flaws. The explanation of block diagrams is short and really bad, Chapter 6 & 7 is very poor as well. They don't explain how they do the issues so unless you mastered circuits, dynamics, thermal fluids,etc... It will be hard to relearned the material in so one issue with this book is the quality of it the pages are super thing and cheaply printed. In addition, the binding is really poor from factory a lot of the students in my class had the same issue.
Whoever did the editing for this book should be taken behind a building and beaten. I haven't found an equation referenced in the text yet that actually referenced the correct equation (some of them don't even exist), which makes it amazing to understand what the author is actually explaining. Phrases such as "done in the usual method" are incredibly helpful when there are multiple methods of solving a problem
An incredibly full-featured and stable application that supports all aspects of field service in a very user-friendly way. Note that it requires proper configuration, which I'm sure is why some are struggling to use it. I have used it almost everyday for several months with no issues, which is beautiful remarkable in this space. My favorite things about the tool is the awesome level of no-code configurability, as well as the robust offline capability.
Amazing Application. A lot of complaints here about the application usually are due to the poor configuration at the back end by the admin, a local device problem or corporate network restriction. I try and use the application on Android, iOS and Windows, very rarely do i have issues, and when i do, its down to something i have done on the back end... adding something to mobile that was never meant for mobile
I just finished teaching a Dynamics Class with this book. My Department gave me a copy of the Dynamics book by itself, but I wanted the Statics part too, so I could refer to what the students just learned in Statics. I think that worked out well.I really like this book. It has a lot of examples, a lot of partially solved problems, and some homework issues with answers in the back and some without. That represents a large amount of work to place that all together. I think about how much work it takes to place together an exam here and there, I can't imagine what it took to accumulate 100s of issues per chapter. Amazing so, the text was well written and the derivations were straight forward.I can see why this is one of the most famous textbooks for Statics and Dynamics e only weakness I noticed is that some of the issues are not physically realistic. For example, in one problem, we care about the 2kg collar at the end of a 2m linkage, but we ignore the weight of the linkage. Most 2m linkages will weigh more than 2kg, why can we ignore it? And, some of the sizes are really big. Yes, there really are 2m linkages in the world, but most mechanical systems are much smaller than in the issues in the book. It would be more realistic if some issues were in cm-g-s troops instead of m-kg-s units. In today's world, students' computers can handle true (and realistic) numbers, we don't need to stick to easy integer values. Perhaps that can be an improvement for the 15th Edition.
As my professor said, this is a classic book that's been used for a while. It really shows in the sense that it covers everything you really need. It gives a ton of examples, walkthroughs of problems, and even more practice provblems to challenge your understanding. It's the go-to book for understanding Dynamic Systems and modeling in my opinion.
Was recommended this reading from lab personnel. Since I never had a course in Gas Dynamics and was 10 years out of Thermo working in compressible and detonation flow required a massive course of self-study. This book is was a very amazing rapid on-ramp into this field with about 3 evenings of solid study. It develops the material and equations in a very physically grounded fashion, reviews the basics of thermo well for the reader as needed, and the complexity of the material flows well as one proceeds through the chapters. Highly recommended for someone finding themselves having to segue into this zone with no prior experience and classwork....
This is an perfect book for the basics of car dynamics. It covers the main subjects in a straightforward, simple to understand method and has amazing examples. The only thing preventing a 5 star rating is that the book is a small dated having been written in the late 1980's. Some of the references therefore need to be updated.
I've used different versions of this book for more than 20 years (starting with the original photocopies). It is a standard "go to book" when I'm explaining concepts in orbital mechanics to my students. The physics haven't changed over the years, but the book has been updated along the an added bonus, Wiesel CORRECTLY derives the rocket equation (Section 7.2) while the 1971 "classic" from Dover gets Newton's Second Law wrong while fumbling through the derivation of the rocket equation (on page 8 of that "classic"). :)
As a graduate student in astronomy I highly recommend this book. It gets the job done on a multitude of dynamical topics, and the explanations come in a lot of layers. One can skip to the equations in a relatively simple manner, but in depth derivations are ong these, the best explanation of what an arbitrary 2-body orbit looks like on the sky.David
This is a amazing exposition of dynamics. It hasA amazing alternative to the Kane formulation, the issues are fun and the descriptions are good. However, the ebook ver has extremely little equations that are borderline unreadable. This is a huge negative to the ebook version. Despite that, the book is definitely worth owning
Well, it's a textbook. It's getting me through the class and is teaching me quite a bit. It explains everything quite well, but there are some typos, such as the oblique shock charts in the appendix. You could probably obtain the older ver for method cheaper and it'd do the same job as this one.
My Maya skills are intermediate at best, but I have a thorough understanding of the mechanics of the thing. That said, I bought this book to obtain a handle on Dynamics, and I bought the right book. Project based, and step by step, you are taken through increasingly complex projects, delving deeper and deeper into dynamics. This is not a book for the newbie. You really need to have a reasonable handle on Maya to create use of it, particularly as there are some erroneous instructions regarding for example Mel Scripts, that will leave you at a dead end if you do not have enough know-how to work them out. Apart from a few proof reading errors, Dynamics is definitely worth the cash, and has expanded my Maya skill set enormously.
The idea of this book is well-placed. However, nearly all the projects are littered with inaccurate values that (upon review) do not match the project files that they give. It makes it almost impossible to follow unless you spend hours looking at the files. The discrepancies are method too a lot of to mention here. I started to think of making a list and emailing the publishers, but it was too much work to hold track of everything that was wrong. My sense is that this was rushed out before other books to corner the shop on nDynamics and Fluids (not much out there at this time) -- but this is virtually impossible to follow. Even the first chapter's projects have inaccurate values listed.
Running on-premise with IFD configured. After logging in, it sends me to a white screen with just a little back arrow. The application just sits there. After a few more tries, I finally got to a demo screen but an error notice pops up that says my server is offline, test again later. Look forward to an update! I'll just my mobile browser for now.
