Loose Leaf for Spreadsheet Tools for Engineers Using Excel / Edition 4 available in Other Format
- Pub. Date:
- McGraw-Hill Professional Publishing
This practical text is a perfect fit for introductory engineering courses by successfully combining an introduction to Excel fundamentals with a clear presentation on how Excel can be used to solve common engineering problems. Updated to ensure compatibility with Excel 2016, Spreadsheet Tools provides beginning engineering students with a strong foundation in problem solving using Excel as the modern day equivalent of the slide rule.
The book is intended primarily as a textbook for use in introductory engineering courses, although it may also be of interest to more advanced students and many practicing engineers.
The author provides plenty of background information on technical terms, and provides numerous examples illustrating both traditional and spreadsheet solutions for a variety of engineering problems. The first three chapters introduce the basics of problem solving and Excel fundamentals. Beyond that, the chapters are largely independent of one another. Topics covered include graphing data, unit conversions, data analysis, interpolation and curve fitting, solving equations, evaluating integrals, creating macros, and comparing economic alternatives.
