Engineering Problem Solving with C++

Second Edition Delores M. Etter - Jeanine A. Ingber


Thoroughly updated for today's new challenges, this is the most complete, accessible introduction to engineering problem solving with ANSI C++, incorporating a clear writing style and a well-illustrated introduction to procedural, and object-oriented, problem solutions.


Delores M. Etter and Jeanine A. Ingber introduce an easy-to-use, five-step methodology for engineering problem solving. Readers learn how to state problems clearly; describe the required I/O; work simplified hand examples; develop appropriate algorithms and convert them to C++ programs; and finally, test problem solutions with diverse data sets.


Etter and Ingber introduce basic C++ features that support all facets of engineering problem solving, including data types, control structures, file streams, arrays, functions, pointers, dynamic data structures, and the use of pre-defined functions and classes provided in the Standard C++ Library. Additional C++ features that support generic programming, data abstraction, and object-oriented problem solutions are introduced in later chapters, including function templates, class templates, iterators, inheritance, virtual methods, and UML diagrams. The authors also present powerful top-down design and stepwise refinement techniques utilizing decomposition outlines, pseudocode, and flowcharts.


Readers can practice new skills with four types of exercises that are used throughout the text, including Practice! exercises, Modify! exercises, Exam Practice! exercises, and an extensive collection of Programming Problems provided at the end of every chapter. The authors also demonstrate their methodology in Problem Solving Applied sections included in every chapter of the text. Problem Solving Applied Problems focus on current Engineering Challenges, presented at the beginning of each chapter.


Features of this new edition include:

  • New coverage of number systems.
  • Expanded coverage of data types and data representation.
  • Expanded coverage of file streams and error handling.
  • Expanded coverage of programmer-defined functions and classes.
  • Expanded coverage of recursion.
  • Addition of Statement Boxes, Program Traces, and UML diagrams.
  • New Problem Solving Applied problems.
