An algorithm for deriving equations of motion of constrained mechanical system

Dinh Van Phong


The article deals with the form of equations of motion of mechanical system with constraints. For holozoic systems the number of differential equation is equal to the degrees of freedom, without regard to the number of chosen coordinates. The possibilities of computer processing (symbolical and numerical) are shown. Two simple examples demonstrate the described technique.
