ENGR 012. Linear Physical Systems Analysis
Engineering phenomena that may be represented by linear, lumped-parameter models are studied. This course builds on the mathematical techniques learned in ENGR 011B and applies them to a broad range of linear systems, such as those in the mechanical, thermal, fluid, and electromechanical domains. Techniques used include Laplace Transforms, Fourier analysis, and Eigenvalue/Eigenvector methods. Both transfer function and state-space representations of systems are studied.
Prerequisite: ENGR 011B or the equivalent or permission of the instructor.
Natural sciences and engineering practicum.
The course includes a laboratory.
