The standard in the field, updated and revised for today's complex mechatronic systems

More than ever before, engineers are responsible for the total system design of the products they create. While traditional modeling and simulation methods are useful in the design of static components, they are of little assistance to those charged with designing mechatronic systems comprising a variety of technologies and energy domains. Engineers who design such complex systems need more sophisticated tools to help them think and visualize on a dynamic systems level. This book arms them with one of the most important of those tools-bond graph modeling, a powerful unified graphic modeling language.

System Dynamics, Third Edition is the only comprehensive guide to modeling, designing, simulating, and analyzing dynamic systems comprising any number of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal, and magnetic subsystems. While it has been updated and expanded to include many new illustrations, expanded coverage of computer simulation models, and more detailed information on dynamic system analysis, it has lost none of the qualities that have helped make it the standard text/reference in the field worldwide. With the help of more than 400 illustrations, the authors demonstrate step by step how to:
* Model a wide range of mechatronic systems using bond graphs
* Experiment with subsystem models to verify or disprove modeling decisions
* Extract system characteristics and predict system behaviors
* Translate graphical models into complex mathematical simulations
* Combine bond graph modeling with state-of-the-art software simulation tools

System Dynamics, Third Edition is an indispensable resource for practicing engineers as well as students of mechanical, electrical, aeronautical, and chemical engineering.
