In this presentation, we’ll demonstrate how to use MATLAB to support the teaching of rigid body dynamics – one of the staples in physics and .. Read more engineering courses. A collection of case studies from Mechanical and Mechatronic engineering will be presented, spanning 1st year concepts through to more advanced 3rd and 4th year rigid body dynamics. Once the equations of motion are derived, Simulink is used to implement the hand derived equations - allowing the students to see the "cause and effect" behavior for this system. Bradley Horton is a member of the Academic Customer Success team at MathWorks, helping faculty members better utilize MATLAB and Simulink for education and research. Bradley has supported and consulted for clients on projects in process control engineering, power systems simulation, military operations research, and earthquake impact modelling. Before joining MathWorks, Brad spent 5 years as a systems engineer with the Defense Science & Technology Organization (DSTO) working as an operations research analyst.
