From the Back Cover:

The primary goal of An Engineer's Guide to MATLAB is to help the reader develop a strong knowledge of MATLAB to solve a wide range of engineering problems. Matrix notation is introduced at the outset and employed consistently in all illustrative scripts and functions to create compact, readable, and efficient MATLAB scripts. There is an emphasis on displaying the results graphically. The book can also be used as a reference for obtaining numerical solutions to a wide range of engineering problems, as a source of applications of a wide variety of MATLAB solution techniques and as a supplement for many engineering courses.

Features

  • Emphasizes engineering subjects of practical importance, each of which is introduced by a concise summary of the applicable theoretical results.
  • Over 200 worked examples from a very wide range of engineering topics illustrate the various ways to use MATLAB and illustrate important engineering principles and their extensions.
  • Numerous illustrations of the Controls, Simulink, Statistics, Optimization and PDE (Partial Differential Equation) toolboxes, including detailed instructions on how to use Simulink to solve control systems and pdetool to solve problems in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics and heat transfer.
  • The chapters applying MATLAB to various engineering subjects were written by experts in their fields.
  • Over 175 challenging exercises covering a wide range of engineering topics.
  • Extensively classrooms-tested at the sophomore level through the first year graduate level.
