Research and Markets: Modelling and Simulation of Integrated Systems in Engineering: Issues of Methodology, Quality, Testing and Application


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Modelling and simulation of integrated systems in engineering: Issues of methodology, quality, testing and application" to their offering.

This book places particular emphasis on issues of model quality and ideas of model testing and validation. Mathematical and computer-based models provide a foundation for explaining complex behaviour, decision-making, engineering design and for real-time simulators for research and training. Many engineering design techniques depend on suitable models, assessment of the adequacy of a given model for an intended application is therefore critically important. Generic model structures and dependable libraries of sub-models that can be applied repeatedly are increasingly important. Applications are drawn from the fields of mechanical, aeronautical and control engineering, and involve non-linear lumped-parameter models described by ordinary differential equations.

Key Topics Covered:

- The principles of system modelling

- Integrated systems and their significance for system modelling

- Problem organisation

- Inverse simulation for system modelling and design

- Methods and applications of parameter sensitivity analysis

- Experimental modelling: system identification, parameter estimation and model optimisation techniques

- Issues of model quality and the validation of dynamic models

- Real-time simulation, virtual prototyping and partial-system testing

- Model management

- Further discussion.
