The Engineering Dynamics Course Companion books (Volumes 1 and 2) are supplemental textbooks intended to assist students, especially visual learners, in their approach to Sophomore level Engineering Dynamics. They emphasize the basics of Newtonian Mechanics and “Problem Solving Skills” in an accessible and fun format organized to coincide with the semester schedule many instructors choose. Both volumes include numerous example problems and sample tests for student practice. The first volume covers the dynamics of particles while the second course covers the dynamics of rigid bodies. Throughout both volumes, students are joined by Newtdog (Sir Isaac Newton) and Wormy, cartoon companions that serve as visual mnemonics to aid in learning and development of problem solving skills. Students are also strongly encouraged to make use of the supplemental videos posted by the author (see below).

Part 1, Particles: Kinematics and Kinetics
Part 2, Rigid Bodies: Kinematics and Kinetics


Edward Diehl, University of Hartford
Dr. Edward Diehl obtained his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Connecticut in December 2016. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Hartford in the Mechanical Engineering Department. Prior to joining UHartford, he was a lecturer (2009–2017) at the United States Coast Guard Academy in both the Mechanical Engineering section and Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering section. He worked as a Principal Engineer (2006–2009, 1996–2000, and 1992–1995) for Seaworthy Systems, Inc., self-employed (2000–2006), and an analyst (1995–1996) for General Dynamics/Electric Boat. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Connecticut. He obtained a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer at Hartford in 1996. He is a proud graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, class of 1992, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Engineering Systems. His research interests include solid mechanics pedagogy, gear vibration and fault modeling, and mechanism design.
