Control, Vibration, and Design of Dynamic Systems
"It's about time"
 
This textbook provides tools to predict and control dynamic systems with modern analytical skills, including trigonometry, calculus, differential equations, complex variables, Laplace transforms, Taylor series/linearization, linear algebra, eigenanalysis, electrical circuits, F = m a.

The textbook provides engineering skills with physical systems, computational skills,   (e.g., MATLAB®)   and interactive, visually-appealing   Working Model simulations   that provide conceptual insight into dynamic systems and controls.

Physical demonstrations and computer simulations include system identification, time constants, period, Coulomb/viscous friction, mass, stiffness, damping, natural frequency, damping ratio, decay ratio, overshoot, settling time, rise time, pole location, harmonic forcing, resonance, steady-state/transient/step response, stability, feedback-control gains, control effort, Bode plots, root locus, and modes.

Outcome:
Ability to model real systems, size physical constants (motor constants, springs, dampers, mass, resistors, capacitors, inductors), linearize and perform stability analysis, design control systems (PID, state-space, feed-forward, on/off), and low/high-pass filters, design for performance, and interpret results.

Training for professional skills.
Engineers are motivated to learn when they solve interesting relevant problems and acquire professional skills. The interactive guided problems lead engineers step-by-step through a complicated procedure so they synthesize the problem-solving process and ultimately arrive at a physically significant and satisfying result. The guidance reduces frustration, promotes confidence, and provides a positive learning experience.

The textbook's problems come from a wide range of engineering including mechanical, aerospace, bioengineering, and controls.
