Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Rowell and Wormley use a linear graph approach. This contrasts with the bond graph approach or no graph approach. This is the important qualifying question for this text. This is the first modern linear graph System Dynamics that has been published in 30 years.

From the Back Cover

Rowell and Wormley use a linear graph approach. This contrasts with the bond graph approach or no graph approach. This is the first modern linear graph System Dynamics that has been published in 30 years. Chapters are organized so that introductory material is presented first, with more advanced topics coming later. Contains exceptionally clear presentation of Frequency response. Features detailed development of the construction of lumped-parameter system models from sets of primitive elements; and modeling techniques are presented using an energy based state-space formulation method that provides linkages to classical system representations.

Format: Paperback
A nice introductory text on system dynamics. The treatment of time-domain modeling and analysis is very good. Unfortunately, the treatment of the s-domain (laplace) approach is a little weak. Overall, good.

A really great subject but the book is not very clear. Often times, my professor would say something like, "Your book says this, but don't do that. Instead, do it this way."
