Course structureThis is a five day course taught by a mix of lecture and computer practicals.
What you will learn
On completion of course attendees will be able to:
- recognise the implications of the assumptions made in forming a model of an engineering system,
- perform modelling and simulation studies using Matlab and Simulink,
- judge the results of a simulation as to whether they and the model used are useful in relation to experimental results or engineering experience,
- demonstrate an understanding of control systems and how they may be modelled and designed.
- application of Newton’s Laws of Motion to the modelling of dynamics systems and the formation of transfer function and state space models,
- dynamic response, effect of damping, natural frequency and time constant in both the time and frequency domains,
- concepts of control, block and simulation diagrams, introduction to control system design and performance specification,
- introduction to Matlab and Simulink for simulating dynamic systems encountered in defence.
Upgrade to a professional qualification
Who should attend
This course is aimed at young engineers who are starting a career in the defence industry who will be using Matlab and Simulink. An appropriate degree in engineering or science, or relevant experience, is required.
