Numerical Methods for Engineers retains the instructional techniques that have made the text so successful. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called "Motivation" "Mathematical Background" and "Orientation". Each part closes with an "Epilogue" containing "Trade-Offs" "Important Relationships and Formulas" and "Advanced Methods and Additional References". Much more than a summary the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Numerous new or revised problems are drawn from actual engineering practice. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in these exercises which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span all areas of engineering giving students a broad exposure to various fields in engineering.McGraw-Hill Education's Connect is also available as an optional add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework quizzes and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

State-of-the-art numerical methods for solving complex engineering problems Great strides in computer technology have been made in the years since the popular first edition of this book was published. Several excellent software packages now help engineers solve complex problems. Making the most of these programs requires a working knowledge of the numerical methods on which the programs are based. Numerical Methods for Engineering Application provides that knowledge. While it avoids intense mathematical detail, Numerical Methods for Engineering Application supplies more in-depth explanations of methods than found in the typical engineer's numerical "cookbook." It offers complete coverage of most commonly encountered algebraic, interpolation, and integration problems. Ordinary differential equations are examined in great detail, as are three common types of partial differential equations--parabolic, elliptic, and hyperbolic. The author also explores a wide range of methods for solving initial and boundary value problems. This complete guide to numerical methods for solving engineering problems on computers provides: * Practical advice on how to select the best method for a given problem * Valuable insights into how each method works and why it is the best choice * Complete algorithms and source code for all programs covered * Code from the book and problem-solving programs designed by the author available from the author's website Numerical Methods for Engineering Application is a valuable working resource for engineers and applied physicists. It also serves as an excellent upper-level text for physics and engineering students in courses on modern numerical methods.

Although pseudocodes, Mathematica®, and MATLAB® illustrate how algorithms work, designers of engineering systems write the vast majority of large computer programs in the Fortran language. Using Fortran 95 to solve a range of practical engineering problems, Numerical Methods for Engineers, Second Edition provides an introduction to numerical methods, incorporating theory with concrete computing exercises and programmed examples of the techniques presented. Covering a wide range of numerical applications that have immediate relevancy for engineers, the book describes forty-nine programs in Fortran 95. Many of the programs discussed use a sub-program library called nm_lib that holds twenty-three subroutines and functions. In addition, there is a precision module that controls the precision of calculations. Well-respected in their field, the authors discuss a variety of numerical topics related to engineering. Some of the chapter features include... The numerical solution of sets of linear algebraic equations Roots of single nonlinear equations and sets of nonlinear equations Numerical quadrature, or numerical evaluation of integrals An introduction to the solution of partial differential equations using finite difference and finite element approaches Describing concise programs that are constructed using sub-programs wherever possible, this book presents many different contexts of numerical analysis, forming an excellent introduction to more comprehensive subroutine libraries such as the numerical algorithm group (NAG).
