Key Features

  • Presents a philosophy and terminology for "Structured Modeling"
  • Includes mathematicl and programming techniques to support and implement the methodology
  • Covers a library of model components, including rigid-body kinematics, rigid-body dynamics, and force-based constraint methods
  • Includes illustrations of several ample models created from these components
  • Foreword by Al Barr

Readership

AUDIENCE: Researchers, computer graphics programmers, CAD/CAM system developers, mathematicians and engineers interested in computer implementation and simulation.
