Using practical examples to enhance student understanding, this comprehensive text introduces fundamental systems techniques for the analysis and design of dynamic systems. It integrates discussions of control systems, physical principles and vibration with that of system dynamics, addressing these topics from a design perspective. The book features a new chapter on microelectromechanical devices, expanded and revised treatment of automatic controls, improved coverage of Laplace transforms and detailed treatment of Evans' root locus methods.

This is a new revision of a well-regarded text in the field of System Dynamics. Analysis and Design of Dynamic Systems has always been known for its explanation of analytical techniques in a thorough and accessible manner. Real-world examples are often used to show students how these techniques can be used in practice.
Cochin/Cadwallender emphasizes more design than any other System Dynamics textbook on the market by choosing analytical techniques which lead to an understanding of design. The authors have even developed thirteen new design methods for the third edition. For schools wishing to incorporate more design into their system dynamics courses, this textbook is an excellent choice.
For those professors who want to incorporate an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, Analysis and Design of Dynamic Systems assists in this goal in a couple of ways. First, many of the examples are solved from the perspective of the electrical, mechanical, and fluid engineer. Second, a new chapter on Mechatronics provides a wealth of examples that allow students to synthesize the information they have learned throughout the course.
