System Dynamics and Response – S. Graham Kelly – 1st Edition


As engineering systems become more increasingly interdisciplinary, of both mechanical and electrical systems has become an asset within the field of engineering. All engineers should have general facility with modeling of and determining their response and it is the objective of this book to provide a framework for that understanding.

The study material is presented in four distinct parts; the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems, the mathematical of the differential equations and integro differential equations obtained during the modeling process, the response of dynamic systems, and an introduction to feedback and their analysis. An Appendix is provided with a short introduction to MATLAB as it is frequently used within the text as a computational tool, a programming tool, and a tool. SIMULINK, a MATLAB based simulation and modeling tool, is discussed in chapters where the development of models use either the function approach or the state-space method.
