The discussion will be based on the book,

*Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic Systems, 2ed*, by Close and Frederick, Houghton Mifflin, 1993.

The topics in this introduction are going to be as follows:

1. Introduction

2. Translational Mechanical Systems

3. Standard Forms for System Models

4. Rotational Mechanical Systems

5. Electrical Systems

6. Analytical Solution of Linear Models

7. The Laplace Transform

8. Transfer Function Analysis

9. Developing a Linear Model (from a nonlinear system)

10. Electromechanical Systems

11. Thermal Systems

12. Hydraulic Systems

And if I can figure out how to post diagrams online:

13. Block Diagrams

14. Feedback System Modeling and Design Tools

15. Computer Analysis
