Abstract : The State Space Method originating from modern control theory is an effective direct integrating method. It is also applicable to approaching dynamic response of mechanical system. Its theoretical basis, means of calculation, computer program and main characteristics are described in this paper. Setting up a mathematical model fo the travelling mechanism of an overhead travelling crane, the authors have tried to find the dynamic response of the system in different conditions using the state space method. The result shows that this method is a stable and accurate theoretical calculating method suitable for all time-varying loads. It helps to get directly the time response of a mechanical system and analyze its dynamic characteristics. (Author)
