Fortran 90 For Engineers (0471364266) cover image

This brief introductory text teaches students how to write programs in Fortran 90. It covers programming basics, and uses a five-step method for solving engineering problems.

This text is suitable for a freshman level Introduction to Programming course in Engineering. It is particularly appropriate for a course in which students will be introduced to a number of different programming languages (i.e. Fortran, C++, Java)

  • Five-step problem solving process. A five-step methodology for solving problems is used throughout the text. Each step is clearly identified to help students focus on the process of breaking a problem into smaller components and then addressing the smaller components throughout the text. The five steps are:
    1. State the problem clearly.
    2. Describe the input and the output.
    3. Work the problem by hand (or with a calculator) for a specific set of data.
    4. Develop a solution that is general in nature.
    5. Test the algorithm with a variety of data sets.
  • Key Topics Covered - arithmetic computations, control structures, array processing, external procedures, and data types, and pointers.
  • Includes real-world applications throughout.
