Engineering system dynamics focuses on deriving mathematical models based on simplified physical representations of actual systems, such as mechanical, electrical, fluid, or thermal, and on solving these models for analysis or design purposes. System Dynamics for Engineering Students features a classical approach to system dynamics and is designed to be utilized as a one-semester system dynamics text for upper-level undergraduate students with emphasis on mechanical, aerospace, or electrical engineering.

System Dynamics for Engin. has been added to your Cart. His teaching background has run the gamut of mechanical engineering, including: system dynamics, controls, instrumentation and measurement, mechanics of materials, dynamics, vibrations, finite element analysis, boundary element analysis, and thermal system design.

System Dynamics for Engineering Students: Concepts and Applications discusses the basic concepts of engineering system dynamics. Engineering system dynamics focus on deriving mathematical models based on simplified physical representations of actual systems, such as mechanical, electrical, fluid, or thermal, and on solving the mathematical models. The resulting solution is utilized in design or analysis before producing and testing the actual system.

The book discusses the main aspects of a system dynamics course for engineering students; mechanical, electrical, and fluid and thermal system modeling; the Laplace transform technique; and the transfer function approach. It also covers the state space modeling and solution approach; modeling system dynamics in the frequency domain using the sinusoidal (harmonic) transfer function; and coupled-field dynamic systems.

The book is designed to be a one-semester system-dynamics text for upper-level undergraduate students with an emphasis on mechanical, aerospace, or electrical engineering. It is also useful for understanding the design and development of micro- and macro-scale structures, electric and fluidic systems with an introduction to transduction, and numerous simulations using MATLAB and SIMULINK.

The first textbook to include a chapter on the important area of coupled-field systemsProvides a more balanced treatment of mechanical and electrical systems, making it appealing to both engineering specialties
  • Wiliniett
Son needed it for class and says it's alright
  • Beabandis
Difficult book to understand. Not a good introductory book, but there is good information inside. There are a few errors, but it is informative and has good problems.
  • Yananoc
Actually took the class with the professor who wrote this book, there are areas for improvement, but it gets the job done. Great professor though.
  • TheSuspect
This is a very well laid out book. Easy to read and very easy to follow. Makes system dynamics sail a lot smoother
  • Gralinda
Not the best system dynamics I have used. There were many errors within the book and the clarity wasn't the best.

Nicolae Lobontiu, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, brings his years of experience teaching classes in system dynamics, as well as the knowledge gleaned from writing four related previous texts -- Dynamics of Microelectomechanical Systems; Mechanical Design of Microresonators; Mechanics of Microelectromechanical Systems; and, Compliant Mechanism: Design of Flexure Hinges -- to produce this solid text for students entering this emerging field.

The discipline of system dynamics focuses on teaching students "how to create and analyze mathematical models of dynamic, mechanical, electrical/electromagnetic, thermal, and fluid/pneumatic systems" for the purpose of designing and then testing systems before they are actually built. While the author retains a classical approach, Lobontiu also introduces examples from compliant mechanisms and microscale devices and machines.

Consideration is given to mechanical engineering problems for junior and senior-level undergraduate students in support of mechanical, aerospace, electrical, biomedical and civil engineering courses and explores mechanism and movement in springs and joints present in "micro-machined, lithographic based devices to traditional models of microscale, fluidic, and electromechanical systems." Offers a "foundation and framework for the development of controllers applied to these dynamical systems." Includes examples and problems at the end of each chapter to familiarize readers with the modeling and dynamical systems engineers are likely to encounter in the future.

Publisher touts the text as "the first system dynamics textbook to include extensive examples from the relatively new application areas of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and compliant (flexible) mechanical devices," and to offer "more ancillary instructor support than any other system dynamics text."

Text is divided into eleven chapters and four appendices:

Ch. 1 Introduction; Ch 2. Mechanical Systems I; Ch. 3 Mechanical Systems II; Ch. 4 Electrical Systems; Ch. 5 Fluid and Thermal Systems; Ch. 6 The Laplace Transform; Ch. 7 Transfer Function Approach; Ch. 8 State-Space Approach; Ch. 9 Frequency Domain Approach; Ch. 10 Coupled-Field Systems; Ch. 11 Introduction to Modeling and Design of Feedback Control System.

Appendix A Solution to Linear Ordinary Homogeneous Differential Equations with Constant Coefficients; Appendix B Review of Matrix Algebra; Appendix C Essentials of MATLAB and System Dynamics-Related Toolboxes; and, Appendix D Deformations, Strains and Stresses of Flexible Mechanical Components.

Recommended for use by instructors teaching a one-semester text for engineering students; by scientists and practicing engineers wanting to better understand the fundamentals of dynamic systems, engineering modeling, vibrations, and system dynamics; and, inclusion in college and university library collections supporting mechanical, aerospace, electrical, biomedical and civil engineering courses.

Lobontiu offers a nice education at the undergraduate level, of mechanical and electrical engineering, where the power of mathematics as an indispensable tool is demonstrated. The discourse starts with mechanical systems, because the reader is more likely to have some intuition about the behaviour of the parts of the systems under stimulus. An effort is also made to introduce recent active areas of research and development, by invoking examples of micro electromechanical systems (MEMS).

Later chapters then discuss electric systems, where perhaps any pre-existing intuition is more unlikely on the part of the reader.

The text also demonstrates the use of Matlab to perform numerical calculations, which is a nice accessory to the derivations of equations that occur on many pages. To this ends, Simulink is also used. It provides a graphical user interface on top of Matlab. For some examples, the graphics produced by Simulink help the reader gain insight into the solution of a problem.

The use of Matlab and Simulink is especially compelling later in the book, when frequency transforms are explained and where the idea of state space is invoked. Often the examples require numerical effort and not just algebra. The reader can then explore non-trivial results in state space. A key difference between this book and a typical text of say 30 years ago, when such tools were often unavailable.

But one recurring problem is that throughout the entire text, whenever Matlab and Simlulink are used, each is accompanied by the copyright symbol. This is tedious and unnecessary. It could have been avoided by putting acknowledgements in the book's copyright page [the standard approach in many books] which would then make reading more fluid.
System Dynamics: Concepts & Applications is probably best suited for the junior or senior level undergraduate course.

It's also a great refresher for the engineer, &/or for those who may need a practical reference guide for MATLAB/Simulink applications.

Sections include: Mechanical systems; Electrical systems; Thermal & fluid systems; The Laplace Transform; Transfer Function Approach; State-space Approach; Frequency Domain Approach; and Coupled-field Systems.

It also has several appendices which serve as review & reference.

FOR INSTRUCTORS: If you're investigating this book as a possible textbook in your college level course, you may be interested to know that there is an online instructor's manual, with lots of visual aids & ready-to-go-Powerpoint lectures.

Also, instructors (or anyone, really) can preview & download the entire first chapter of this book at: [...]. This is also where you set up your teacher's account/login, to get access to the powerpoint & other materials - just do a search by title, or cut & paste the ISBN from the Amazon details page.
