P13361: System Dynamics Filtering Laboratory


Project Summary Project Information

Creating an engaging and interactive method of teaching filter concepts to the Mechanical Engineering department's System Dynamics concepts was identified as a significant area of need, which warranted this project's inception. The purpose of Project 13361 is to completely develop and document the production of a complete laboratory experience identifying filter concepts in both the hardware and software domains. Student interactivity and a balance of moderate difficulty with practical feasibility are major components of a successfully implemented project.
