By John W. Woods & Kent L. Lawrence, ISBN 0-13-337379-1
The material in this book is designed for a course in engineering at theundergraduate and graduate levels. The book provides comprehensive coverageof modeling techniques of the major types of dynamic engineering systems,solution techniques for the resulting differential equations for linearand nonlinear systems, and attendant mathematical procedures related tothe presentation of dynamic systems and determination of their time andfrequency response characteristics. The book explains in detail how toselect all of the system component parameter values for static and dynamicperformance specifications and limits. The example problems in the textare solved using MATLAB and an appendix provides guidance on the use ofMATLAB for the solution of typical dynamic simulation problems.
