MAE 371 - Mechanical Systems Modeling

Presents general concepts of dynamical systems modeling and provides mathematical tools to develop and analyze models that describe input/output behaviors of physical systems. Topics include basic elements of mechanical and electrical systems, transfer function, frequency response, stability and poles, resonance and natural frequency, transient and time constant, steady state and DC gain, electrical and mechanical systems analogy, system decomposition, block diagram, state space model, and control design. Reviews and frequently uses Newton’s law, Kirchhoff’s law, Laplace transform, and linear algebra. Introduces computer software (Matlab) for numerical analysis and simulations of dynamical systems.
