This front matter contains the table of contents, series preface, preface and acknowledgments. An introductory textbook covering dynamics and controls of engineering systems, with particular focus on mechanical engineering systems.
Presents and illustrates the process of translating systems in the physical world to mathematical models in the conceptual world during the derivations of equations of motion.
Includes problems and solutions. Contains a separate chapter for operating principles of sensors or transducers and their equations of motion. Covers graphical methods for control system analysis and design. eBook keywords: dynamic systems, controls, sensors, static responses, dynamic responses, Laplace transforms, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, oscillatory systems, DOF, thermal systems, transducers, control systems, systems analysis.
