Advanced System Modelling and Simulation with Block Diagram Languages explores and describes the use of block languages in dynamic modelling and simulation. The application of block diagrams to dynamic modelling is reviewed, not only in terms of known components and systems, but also in terms of the development of new systems. Methods by which block diagrams clarify the dynamic essence of systems and their components are emphasized throughout the book, and sufficient introductory material is included to elucidate the book's advanced material. Widely used continuous dynamic system simulation (CDSS) languages are analyzed, and their technical features are discussed. This self-contained resource includes a review section on block diagram algebra and applied transfer functions, both of which are important mathematical subjects, relevant to the understanding of continuous dynamic system simulation.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
