Abstract 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.
