Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Introduction to systems modeling and analysis. Application to engineering systems including: mechanical, electrical, thermal, and fluid systems. Allows the student to acquire, in a time-efficient and uncomplicated manner, knowledge in the formation and construction of dynamic models. The simulation models that the student will design in this course accommodate these analyses, with the construction of realistic hypotheses and elaborate behavior models. Students with credit for ENSC 381 may not take MSE 380 for further credit.

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

Upon completion of the course, students should:

  • Gain the knowledge to implement the fundamental concepts of system modelling and representation of electrical, mechanical, fluid and thermal systems.
  • Be able to develop effective models to analyze and simulate systems using State‐Space Representation and Time‐Domain Analysis, Linearization, Transfer Function, Linear Graphs, and Bond Graphs.
  • Be able to implement and analyze models using simulation software tools

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
