Outcomes
  • Student will be able to build an accurate dynamic model of a complex mechanical or electromechanical system by a divide-and-conquer approach that makes use of physics, constitutive laws, geometry, and whatever other information one may have about the system.
  • Students will be able to use linear and nonlinear system simulation and analysis tools to study transient and frequency response of systems.
  • Students will be able to use modern dynamics and control lab equipment to measure, record and analyze system response.
  • Students will be able to choose appropriate values for model parameters to meet passive or open-loop performance specifications on dynamic response.
  • Students will be able to design closed-loop feedback controllers to meet performance specifications on dynamic response.
