Computer Usage: Matlab will be used extensively during the course, and technical support will be provided by the instructor. Matlab is available on the university network. Students can also purchase an academic version of Matlab at the bookstore if they wish.
1. Modeling of dynamic mechanical, electrical, thermal and fluid systems.
2. Model formation in input-output and state variable formats.
3. Numerical simulation of dynamic systems.
4. Analytical solution of 1st and 2nd order models; transient and frequency response behavior.
Homework and Grading
Homework assignments will be given periodically during the course. Three "midterm" exams, and one final exam will also be given during this course. The grade weights are:
1. Homework 10% total for all of the assignments,
2. Midterm Exams 60%, 20% for each exam,
3. Final Exam 30%
