Disabilities:
The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic adjust-ments for qualified students with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 471-6259, 471-4241 TDD or the School of Engineering Directorof Students with Disabilities at 471-4321.2
 
Class Evaluation:
The Measurement and Evaluation Center (MEC) course evaluations forms for the Schoolof Engineering will be administered during the last week of class to evaluate the course andinstructor. Additional evaluations may be used during the semester to obtain additionalfeedback in order to enhance your academic experience.
Assistance:
Assistance is available during office
1
hours or by appointment. For rapid response, sendyour question via e-mail to
benito@mail.utexas.edu
. Provide sufficient detail.
Collaboration:
Discussion of assignments (homework and projects) with other students is encouraged,but all work submitted must be your own. Any evidence of plagiarism or other forms of scholastic dishonesty will be grounds for a failing grade in the course.
Miscelaneous:
No dropping after the 4th day of class (2009.02.11); with Dean’s approval: 2009.03.24(Go to the office of Engineering Student Affairs, ECJ 2.200). Scholastic honesty rules willbe strictly enforced.
Objectives:
Represent dynamical systems in mathematical terms (differential equations) using bondgraphs
Assess characteristic behavior of dynamic systems in the time and frequency domains
Synthesize automatic controllers to achieve desired behavior
Course Catalog Description:
Lumped physical system models; electrical, fluid, mechanical, and thermal system analy-sis; linear system transient, steady-state behavior; introduction to feedback control. Threelecture hours a week for one semester.
Homework Policy:
Homework will be assigned to support lecture material and reading assignments. Therewill be approximately six (6) to ten (10) homework assignments. Unless specified, thehomework is due the beginning of class, one week after the assignment date. No latehomework will be accepted except for illness or other extenuating circumstances. Studentsshould bring a signed excuse from a health professional (if ill) or other authoritativeprofessional (other extenuating circumstances).For full credit, work must be done in a neat and professional manner; all relevant sketchesand intermediate results must be shown; and numerical answers must include relevantmagnitudes, directions, and units. Solutions will be posted on the BalckBoard web page.
Examination and Laboratory Policy:
The class will not have a final exam. In liu of the Final, there is a term project. Duringthe scheduled
There will be eight (8) to twelve (12) Laboratory assignments. The AML (AdvancedMechatronics Laboratory) is located in ETC 3.148. Access to the Lab is 24/7 with anauthorized UT ID (with RFID code).
