Engineering: An Introduction to Solving Engineering Problems with Matlab

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Table of Contents

  • 1. Introduction to Problem Solving With MATLAB

    This is an introduction to the other chapters and should be considered the book forward.

  • 2. Problem Solving

    An engineering problem-solving process using m-file environments is divided into seven steps, and demonstrated by means of a detailed variation of visual representation using UML.

  • 3. Basic Mathematical Computations

    Mathematical operations, variable expressions, and vector and matrix computations in an m-file environment are explored.

  • 4. Graphing

    Engineers use m-files extensively for graphical representations of data and computed values. Examples include vector operations. Tools for plotting are summarized.

  • 5. Introduction to Programming with M-file Scripts

    M-file scripts can be used to automate computations and implement complex capabilities.

  • 6. For Loops

    For loops are a way to repeat a series of computations using different values. Example include counting balls in an enclosed container and analyzing rocket trajectories.

  • 7. Conditionals

    If statements are a way to make a sequence of computations depend on variable values. Examples include engineering cost analysis.

  • 8. While Loops

    While loops are another way to repeat a series of computations using different values. The number of times the loop is executed depends on variable values computed by the loop. Examples include personal finance.
