This text provides students with an in-depth look at the capabilities and limitations of computers in engineering applications. Packed with examples, it shows how to use the computer as an analytical tool in the development, testing and documentation of a structured problem. Among the topics discussed are FORTRAN programming hardware and software suitability for specific problems and the use, verification and modification of applications software packages. In addition, the types and magnitudes of errors that can arise in computer calculations are carefully covered and readers learn to recognize when the computer is not the proper tool for solving a particular problem. With numerous exercises, it also gives students the ability to become proficient in additional languages or software packages as the need arises. |
