SCOPE OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL -- Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of precision mechanics, electronics, computer and control systems to build intelligent machines. Mechatronics and mechatronic engineers are essential for any industry of modern engineering. This Summer School provided useful and recent knowledge about mechatronics and its application. Most participants were faculty, students and engineers from Vietnam.
MODULES ON THIS SITE -- I taught a short course in this Summer School comprised of three modules, the first on digital simulation of mechatronics systems, the second on sinusoidal-input describing function (SIDF) methods for analysis of mechatronics systems, and the third on SIDF methods for design. The handouts (including overheads) are available below for anyone interested.
