Oakes/Leone is an introduction to engineering text. Although introduction to engineering is not offered at all schools, we are seeing the course grow (22% up in last two years TWM Research) as students enter engineering schools and drop out in their second year because they are overwhelmed bythe math and physics and have not received any engineering instruction at all. As such, this course and text strive to introduce students to the topics in engineering including descriptions of the various sub-fields, math fundamentals, ethics, technical communications, engineering design and studentsuccess skills. The market is segmented between a soft approach to engineering-leaving out math and physics altogether, and a more comprehensive approach to engineering including math and physics. Oakes Brief is for the former segment and Oakes Comprehensive is for the latter segment. The book is successful becauseit covers the basic course needs well.

Through hands-on lab exercises, this lab manual teaches the syntax and semantics of C++ constructs in a flexible framework that is perfect for both closed lab settings and independent learning. The exercises are broken into three types of activities: Pre-Lab: Reading review and paper-and-pencil exercises designed to ensure understanding of the material to be covered in the exercises In-Lab: Individual lessons broken into exercises specifically mapped to the concepts covered in the chapter Post-Lab: Programming assignments which can be done independently and cover the important topics from the chapter Checklist cover sheets allow students and instructors to track the assignments, output, and grading for each exercise. Perforated pages aid in submission and grading of exercises and homework assignments.

A comprehensive guide to numerical methods for simulating physical-chemical systems This book offers a systematic, highly accessible presentation of numerical methods used to simulate the behavior of physical-chemical systems. Unlike most books on the subject, it focuses on methodology rather than specific applications. Written for students and professionals across an array of scientific and engineering disciplines and with varying levels of experience with applied mathematics, it provides comprehensive descriptions of numerical methods without requiring an advanced mathematical background. Based on its author’s more than forty years of experience teaching numerical methods to engineering students, Numerical Methods for Solving Partial Differential Equations presents the fundamentals of all of the commonly used numerical methods for solving differential equations at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in science and engineering. Throughout, elementary examples show how numerical methods are used to solve generic versions of equations that arise in many scientific and engineering disciplines. In writing it, the author took pains to ensure that no assumptions were made about the background discipline of the reader. Covers the spectrum of numerical methods that are used to simulate the behavior of physical-chemical systems that occur in science and engineering Written by a professor of engineering with more than forty years of experience teaching numerical methods to engineers Requires only elementary knowledge of differential equations and matrix algebra to master the material Designed to teach students to understand, appreciate and apply the basic mathematics and equations on which Mathcad and similar commercial software packages are based Comprehensive yet accessible to readers with limited mathematical knowledge, Numerical Methods for Solving Partial Differential Equations is an excellent text for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in the sciences and engineering. It is also a valuable working reference for professionals in engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science, and applied mathematics.

Author Joseph Dyro has been awarded the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Clinical/Biomedical Engineering Achievement Award which recognizes individual excellence and achievement in the clinical engineering and biomedical engineering fields. He has also been awarded the American College of Clinical Engineering 2005 Tom O'Dea Advocacy Award. As the biomedical engineering field expands throughout the world, clinical engineers play an evermore important role as the translator between the worlds of the medical, engineering, and business professionals. They influence procedure and policy at research facilities, universities and private and government agencies including the Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organization. Clinical Engineers were key players in calming the hysteria over electrical safety in the 1970's and Y2K at the turn of the century and continue to work for medical safety. This title brings together all the important aspects of Clinical Engineering. It provides the reader with prospects for the future of clinical engineering as well as guidelines and standards for best practice around the world. * Clinical Engineers are the safety and quality faciltators in all medical facilities.

This text was designed with three objectives in mind: to introduce engineering and science students to a problem solving technique that they can use in solving engineering problems; to provide a fundamental understanding of computers and to specifically develop a working knowledge of FORTRAN 77; and to motivate and excite students about engineering, and help them understand the types of problems that engineers solve. * Engineering and Science Applications. Over 600 examples and problems representing a wide range of engineering and science applications, related to engineering disciplines ranging from mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering to cutting-edge fields such as genetic, robotic and environmental engineering. * Five-Step Problem Solving Methodology. The five-step problem solving methodology is consistently used throughout this Edition. The five steps are: * State the problem clearly. * Describe the input and the output. * Work the problem by hand (or with a calculator) for a specific set of data. * Develop a solution that is general in nature. * Test the algorithm with a variety of data sets. * Engineering Case Studies. The application sections form a set of 30 engineering case studies. Each case study includes a detailed development of the problem's solution along with sample data to illustrate testing the algorithm. * Complete FORTRAN 77 Coverage. Complete coverage of FORTRAN 77 makes this book not only suitable for the first-time computer user but also as a valuable reference for the experienced user. In addition, only standard FORTRAN 77 statements and structures are used so all programs and statements are compatible with any FORTRAN 77 compiler. * Fortran 90 Coverage. Fortran 90 is discussed in detailed notes throughout the text and in a special chapter at the end.
