For use in the first-year engineering course. This text is also suitable for individuals interested in adopting a problem-solving approach to engineering problems.The goal of this text is to introduce a general problem-solving approach for the beginning engineering student. Thus, Introduction to Engineering Analysis focuses on how to solve (any) kind of engineering analytical problem in a logical and systematic way. The book helps to prepare the students for such analytically oriented courses as statics, strength of materials, electrical circuits, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, etc.
