This text on analysis of structures that deform in use presents an integrated approach to analytical dynamics, structural dynamics and control theory. The author goes beyond classical dynamics of rigid bodies to incorporate analysis of flexibility of structures. Real-world examples of applications, such as robotics, precision machinery and aircraft structures are included.
