Chapter 16

SIMULINK® Toolbox

Abstract

The objective of this chapter is to introduce Simulink (a graphical programming environment) by applying it to solve dynamic systems investigated by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics students. The first topic covered in this chapter is the process of opening Simulink and initiating the construction of a signal processing model. Subsequently, we examine two examples of dynamic systems typically investigated by students in their first-year courses in physics. The next two dynamic systems examined are classic nonlinear equations typically investigated in courses on nonlinear dynamical systems. The examples examined in this chapter are: (1) A spring, mass damper model of a mechanical system. ...
