Summary "Maintaining an optimal blend of theory and practice, this readily accessible reference/text details the utility of system dynamics for analysis and design of mechanical, electrical, fluid, thermal, and "mixed" engineering systems - addressing topics from system elements and simple first- and second-order systems to complex lumped- and distributed-parameter models of practical machines and processes." "Emphasizing digital simulation and integrating frequency-response methods throughout, System Dynamics furnishes up-to-date and thorough discussions on relations between real system components and ideal math models ... continuous-time dynamic system simulation methods, such as MATLINK/SIMULINK ... analytical techniques, such as classical D-operator and Laplace transform methods for differential equation solutions and linearization methods ... vibration, electromechanics, and mechatronics ... Fourier spectrum treatment of periodic functions and transients ... and more." "Serving as a foundation for engineering experience, System Dynamics is a valuable reference for mechanical, system, control/instrumentation, and sensor/actuator engineers as well as a textbook for undergraduate students taking courses such as Dynamic Systems in departments of mechanical, aerospace, electrical, agricultural, and industrial engineering and engineering physics."--Jacket.
