Orbital Mechanics for Engineering Students Second Edition provides an introduction to the basic concepts of space mechanics. These include vector kinematics in three dimensionsNewton�s laws of motion and gravitationrelative motionthe vector-based solution of the classical two-body problemderivation of Kepler�s equationsorbits in three dimensionspreliminary orbit determinationand orbital maneuvers. The book also covers relative motion and the two-impulse rendezvous probleminterplanetary mission design using patched conicsrigid-body dynamics used to characterize the attitude of a space vehiclesatellite attitude dynamicsand the characteristics and design of multi-stage launch vehicles.Each chapter begins with an outline of key concepts and concludes with problems that are based on the material covered. This text is written for undergraduates who are studying orbital mechanics for the first time and have completed courses in physics dynamics and mathematics including differential equations and applied linear algebra. Graduate students researchers and experienced practitioners will also find useful review materials in the book.NEW: Reorganized and improved discusions of coordinate systems new discussion on perturbations and quarternionsNEW: Increased coverage of attitude dynamics including new Matlab algorithms and examples in chapter 10New examples and homework problemsRead more
