This text presents the basic theory and practice of system dynamics. It introduces the modeling of dynamic systems and response analysis of these systems, with an introduction to the analysis and design of control systems. KEY TOPICS Specific chapter topics include The Laplace Transform, mechanical systems, transfer-function approach to modeling dynamic systems, state-space approach to modeling dynamic systems, electrical systems and electro-mechanical systems, fluid systems and thermal systems, time domain analyses of dynamic systems, frequency domain analyses of dynamic systems, time domain analyses of control systems, and frequency domain analyses and design of control systems.
For mechanical and aerospace engineers.
Intended for mechanical engineering students, this text presents a treatment of the modeling and analysis of dynamic systems and an introduction to the analysis and design of control systems. It includes chapters on the Laplace transform, mechanical, electrical, fluid, thermal, and discrete-time systems, linear systems analyses, and mathematical modeling of dynamic systems in state space.
