Use MATLAB/Simulink for Mechanical Engineering Design and Analysis Applications
Program using MATLAB and Simulink for applications in engineering topics such as dynamics, vibrations, systems, control, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. In this course, students will learn about both textual and graphical programing, graphical presentation of computations, creation of functions to rapidly perform analysis processes and visualization.
- Dynamics and Vibration using as a single degree vibratory system as a case study
- Introduction to Control Systems with emphasis on designing PID Controller
- System identification
- Simulink and Systems Simulation
- Fluid Mechanics
- Heat Transfer
- Ability to create and manipulate variables and matrices
- Program and run scripts
- Use graphics tools to display data
- Manipulate imported data
- Graphical programing in Simulink
- Identify and simulation of dynamic systems
- Understand various ways to represent and manipulate dynamics systems
- Design control law for dynamics systems to meet time response requirements
- Apply the skills acquired to solve problems and visualize solutions to problems in various engineering fields
