Recognizing the important role of computation in scientific and engineering investigations, we will address, in this work, the topic of quantitative approaches required in the simulation and computation of the dynamics of engineering systems. For this purpose, we will consider a novel look at utilizing a class of classical methods of asymptotic analysis.
