Full text not currently available from Enlighten.


This book provides an introduction to modern methods for computer simulation of systems involving continuous variables. Experience with the use of continuous system simulation techniques in various areas of engineering and for biomedical applications provides a variety of illustrative applications which show readers both the theory and practice of modelling and simulation. The approach is practical throughout, placing particular emphasis on the use of widely available simulation languages and other appropriate software tools. A simple simulation language is provided on disk with the book and is used with case studies and examples from control, aeronautical, mechanical and biomedical engineering to give readers hands-on experience. Commercially available software is also described and applied. Emphasis is given to the importance of model validation and real-time simulation techniques and applications are discussed.
