In a root locus plot, the location where the asymptotes cross the real line is called the center of gravity or the centroid, defined in (15).
The topics include dynamic response and the Laplace transform method, spring and damper elements in mechanical systems, fluid and thermal systems, control system design and the root locus plot, and vibrator applications.
The open loop poles of the transfer functions corresponding to the dynamics described in (1) and (2) are shown by means of root locus plots in Fig.
