Humanoid robot limbs require complex dynamics analyses.

Content summary[edit]

The study of Dynamics is the fundamental examination of the effects of Forces upon objects and the resulting relationship with movement. Often referred to as one of the two primary disciplines within the field of Engineering Mechanics, dynamics explores the behavior of moving bodies.
