Fundamentals of Modeling and Analyzing Engineering Systems
This text, aimed at beginning engineering students, offers a broad-based introduction to engineering systems that incorporates material from mechanical, electrical, aerospace, and chemical engineering. The overall theme that distinguishes the text from others is its unified treatment of disparate physical systems, emphasizing similarities in both the modeling and behavior of lumped-element systems. Chapters cover linear graph theory, analysis of system dynamics organized by behavioral characteristics rather than by engineering subdisciplines, the Laplace transform, and feedback systems. Every chapter includes examples and exercise problems, drawn from real-world mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, chemical, and thermal systems.
