This textbook is ideal for an undergraduate course in Engineering System Dynamics and Controls. It is intended to provide the reader with a thorough understanding of the process of creating mathematical (and computer-based) models of physical systems. The material is restricted to lumped parameter models, which are those models in which time is the only independent variable. It assumes a basic knowledge of engineering mechanics and ordinary differential equations. The new edition has expanded topical coverage and many more new examples and exercises.
J. Lowen Shearer (1921â1992) received his Sc.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At M.I.T. between 1950 and 1963, he served as both the group leader in the Dynamic Analysis & Control Laboratory and as a member of the Mechanical Engineering faculty. From 1963 until his retirement in 1985, he served on the faculty of Mechanica...
