As engineering systems become more increasingly interdisciplinary, knowledge of both mechanical and electrical systems has become an asset within the field of engineering. All engineers should have general facility with modeling of dynamic systems and determining their response and it is the objective of this book to provide a framework for that understanding. The study material is presented in four distinct parts; the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems, the mathematical solution of the differential equations and integro differential equations obtained during the modeling process, the response of dynamic systems, and an introduction to feedback control systems and their analysis.

Dr. S. Graham Kelly has been a faculty member and administrator at The University of Akron since 1982. He is the author of one textbook in Vibrations, now in its second edition, another text on System Dynamics and Response, and the author of the Schaum's Outline in Mechanical Vibrations. Dr. Kelly has served The University of Akron in its administration as Associate Provost and most recently as Interim Dean of Engineering.
