Course requirements:

Homework: Homework will normally be assigned each Thursday and due the following Thursday in class (unless otherwise noted). Please note, late homework will not be accepted. You are allowed to work on the homework in small groups, but you must write up your own homework to hand in. Homework will sometimes involve some simple MATLAB programming (previous knowledge of MATLAB is not necessary). Homework will be graded on a scale of 100.

Grading: Homework = 26%, Midterm #1 = 37% and Midterm #2 = 37%. These weights are approximate; the instructor reserves the right to change them later, as needed (changes will always be to the betterment of the student's final grade).

Prerequisites: Exposure to linear algebra and matrices. You should have seen the following topics: matrices and vectors, (introductory) linear algebra and differential equations. Some preliminary knowledge of MATLAB would be beneficial but not required. Deeper appreciation for the course would be derived from having taken CEE571: Linear System Theory.

Catalog description: This course is an introductory course in the fundamentals of dynamics system theory applied to infrastructure systems including applications in modeling, motoring and controlling structural, transportation, hydraulic, and electrical grid systems. Linear systems are emphasized including continuous-time and discrete-time systems but elementary concepts in nonlinear systems are also presented. Additional topics include feedback control theory, system identification, and cyber-physical system architectures.
