Numerical Methods in Engineering with MATLAB

Posted By: meister


Numerical Methods in Engineering with MATLAB is a text for ³°³

³°³ engineering students and a reference for practicing engineers, ³°³

³°³ especially those who wish to explore the power and efficiency of ³°³

³°³ MATLAB. Examples and applications were chosen for their relevance ³°³

³°³ to real world problems, and where numerical solutions are most ³°³

³°³ efficient. Numerical methods are discussed thoroughly and ³°³

³°³ illustrated with problems involving both hand computation and ³°³

³°³ programming. MATLAB mfiles accompany each method and are available ³°³

³°³ on the book web site. This code is made simple and easy to ³°³

³°³ understand by avoiding complex bookkeeping schemes, while ³°³

³°³ maintaining the essential features of the method. MATLAB was chosen ³°³

³°³ as the example language because of its ubiquitous use in ³°³

³°³ engineering studies and practice. Moreover, it is widely available ³°³

³°³ to students on school networks and through inexpensive educational ³°³

³°³ versions. Explore numerical methods with MATLAB, a great tool for ³°³

³°³ teaching scientific computation.About the AuthorJaan Kiusalaas is a ³°³

³°³ Professor Emeritus in the School of Engineering Science and ³°³

³°³ Mechanics at Pennsylvania State University. He has taught numerical ³°³

³°³ methods, including finite element and boundary element methods for ³°³

³°³ over 30 years. He is also the co-author of four other works, ³°³

³°³ Engineering Mechanics: Statics, Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics, ³°³

³°³ Mechanics of Materials, and an alternate version of this work with ³°³

³°³ Python code.
