System Dynamics – William Palm III – 1st Edition

Palm’s Dynamics is a major new entry in this course offered for Mechanical, Aerospace and Electrical Engineering students, as well as for practicing engineers.

Palm’s text is notable for having the strongest coverage of computational software and system simulation of any available book. MATLAB is introduced in Chapter 1, and every subsequent chapter has a standalone MATLAB Applications section. No previous experience with MATLAB is assumed; methods are carefully explained, and a detailed appendix outlines use of the program. SIMULINK is introduced in Chapter 5, and used in subsequent chapters to demonstrate the use of system .

This textbook also makes a point of using real-world , such as vehicle suspension and motion control , to illustrate textbook content.
