* The first textbook to include a chapter on the important area of coupled-field systems
* Provides a more balanced treatment of mechanical and electrical systems, making it appealing to both engineering specialties
Takes a classical approach to system dynamics and rearranges it into a more logical teaching progression. Has a balanced coverage of the main field systems (mechanical, electrical/electromagnetic, thermal and fluid/pneumatic), and is the first system dynamics textbook to include extensive examples from the relatively new application areas of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and compliant (flexible) mechanical devices. The author has extensive teaching and research experience in the field of MEMS/NEMS, and provides unique coverage of couple-field problems and offers more ancillary instructor support than any other system dynamics text.
Junior and senior undergraduate students in mechanical, electrical and aerospace engineering programs
