2020Shelton, Therese  Remote Teaching Module  Car Suspensions
28 Jul 2020   Contributor(s):: Therese Shelton
In this modeling activity, students examine the springmassdashpot that is part of a car suspension. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel, and compare effects of different masses, spring constants, damping coefficients, and the angle at which the assembly is installed....

3105SFrequencyResponse
22 Jul 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We describe the frequency response to a second order differential equation with a driving function as the maximum steady state solution amplitude and perform some analyses in this regard.

3034SCarSuspensions
14 Jul 2020   Contributor(s):: Therese Shelton, Brian Winkel
We examine the springmassdashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.

1128SRocketFlight
04 Jun 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We offer an opportunity to build a mathematical model using Newton's Second Law of Motion and a Free Body Diagram to analyze the forces acting on the rocket of changing mass in its upward flight under power and then without power followed by its fall to earth.

3026SSpringInverseProblem
29 May 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We are given data on the position of a mass in an oscillating spring mass system and we seek to discover approaches to estimating an unknown parameter.

3031SSpringCost
28 May 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
This is a situation where we are charged with analyzing costs for a spring to meet certain specifications.

31 Mar 2019   Contributor(s):: Mitaxi Pranlal Mehta
Differential equations and Laplace transforms are an integral part of control problems in engineering systems. However a clear explanation of the relationship of Laplace transforms with the differential equation formalism is difficult to find for coupled differential equations. Here we describe...
