Matlab for ME175, Spring 2006.
Notes and Codes:
ZieglerND.m integrates the Ziegler pendulum equations of motion and animates the results.
Ziegler pendulum exhibits Dissipation Induced Destabilization.
RGBcube.m displays a colored slice of the RGB cube, which can be
rotated in three dimensions.
For some reason, this GUI is extremely platform dependant; if anyone can fix this I'd be very happy to hear about it.
In lecture on March 1, we
derived Lagrange's Equations for a constrained system of two particles.
The m-file pendA.m integrates these equations with ode45, solves for the constraint
forces, and produces
an animation of the motion. We also touched on the
dynamics of an n-chain, using
integrate the equations of motion and produce an animation.
parabola.m is a Matlab function that generates two images of a
paraboloid, one of which is
translucent and folliated by families of red and green lines (these could be coordinate curves in a
curvilinear coordinate system).
My Math128a site. Math128a is about numerical analysis;
you may find some of the codes and
Mastering Matlab is a comprehensive, well written, and well illustrated Matlab bible. I highly
recommend this book!
Matlab Online Help. This is the
official Matlab website. It appears to contain a "getting started"
tutorial for using Matlab. Also, it provides the help documentation for any Matlab function.
