Wayne E. Whiteman

 

 


 

Dr. Whiteman joined Georgia Tech after serving as an assistant, associate, and full professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. During that time, Dr. Whiteman served as the Mechanical Engineering Program Director for an undergraduate program with approximately twenty-five faculty members in the fields of mechanical systems, thermal sciences, aeronautical systems, and engineering design. He also directed and served as a senior mentor at annual workshops to improve teaching skills and enhance learning environments.

Dr. Whiteman served 24 years in the United States Army prior to arriving at Georgia Tech in 2003. He retired from military service as an officer in the Corps of Engineers at the rank of Colonel. His military field assignments culminated in his command of the 577th Engineering Battalion at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

This course is an introduction to the study of bodies in motion as applied to engineering systems and structures. We will study the dynamics of particle motion and bodies in rigid planar (2D) motion. This will consist of both the kinematics and kinetics of motion. Kinematics deals with the geometrical aspects of motion describing position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time. Kinetics is the study of forces acting on these bodies and how it affects their motion.
