Dynamic Modeling Exam Review

The exam on dynamic modeling covers fundamental relationships (first principles, physics-based) and data-driven (empirical) approaches. In engineering, there are 4 common balance equations from conservation principles including mass, momentum, energy, and species (see Balance Equations). An alternative to physics-based models is to use input-output data to develop empirical dynamic models such as first-order systems.

A practice exam is available as a review of the concepts covered in for the first exam. The exam problems are open-ended so appropriate assumptions should be documented.
