Overview

William Palm's System Dynamics is a major new entry in this course offered for Mechanical, Aerospace and Electrical Engineering students, as well as for practicing engineers.

Palm's text is notable for having the strongest coverage of computational software and system simulation of any available book. MATLAB is introduced in Chapter 1, and every subsequent chapter has a MATLAB Applications section. No previous experience with MATLAB is assumed; methods are carefully explained, and a detailed appendix outlines use of the program. Browse EngineeringCS.com to find M-files provided for all users of the book. SIMULINK is introduced in Chapter 5, and used in subsequent chapters to demonstrate the use of system simulation techniques.

This textbook also makes a point of using real-world systems, such as vehicle suspension systems and motion control systems, to illustrate textbook content.
