Understanding Dynamic Systems: Approaches to Modeling, Analysis, and Design

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, 1993 - Systems engineering. - 648 pages
A textbook that embraces the whole of engineering in a unified context, promoting system thinking by breaking down unnecessary barriers between disciplines. The six chapters address design insights, lumped-network models of systems, lumped-network behavior, equivalence and superposition in linear networks, frequency-response models, and coupling devices. The author uses the text for a two- semester first course in engineering; it has also been used as an integrative course for seniors, primarily in mechanical engineering.
