  • Contains designs and instructions for constructing and conducting in-class system dynamics experiments that reinforce the connection between the subject matter and engineering reality
  • Has an instructor pack with the online publication including in-class experiments with minimal preparation requirements
  • Provides content dedicated to the modeling of modern interdisciplinary technological subjects including opto-mechanical systems, high-speed manufacturing equipment, and measurement systems
  • Incorporates MATLAB® and Simulink® throughout the text
  • Contains interactive applets that animate the dynamics of systems

This textbook is ideal for mechanical engineering students preparing to enter the workforce during a time of rapidly accelerating technology, where they will be challenged to join interdisciplinary teams. It explains system dynamics using analogies familiar to the mechanical engineer while introducing new content in an intuitive fashion. The fundamentals provided in this book prepare the mechanical engineer to adapt to continuous technological advances with topics outside traditional mechanical engineering curricula by preparing them to apply basic principles and established approaches to new problems.
