Java, Java, Java: Object-Oriented Problem Solving

The “objects first” approach to programming and problem solving that was characteristic of the first two editions of the textbook. Throughout the text we emphasize careful coverage of Java language features, introductory programming concepts, and object-oriented design principles.

Includes: Chapter reviews, and self-study exercises.

Computational Fluid Dynamics: An Open-Source Approach

This book includes a discussion of the physics of fluid flow, numerical methods for approximating fluid flows on computers, and then a series of applied test cases. Through a combination of open-source tools including Gmsh, SU2, and Paraview, you can be running CFD simulations on your computer in a matter of minutes without any expensive licenses. A number of Python codes that can be run interactively in the cloud introduce you to the basics of numerical methods and how to start writing your own CFD codes!

Includes: Examples, and questions.

May suit: AUTOTECH 3TS3.

Fundamentals of Compressible Fluid Mechanics 

This book, Fundamentals of Compressible Flow, describes the fundamentals of compressible flow phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace the book(s) or instructor’s notes for the compressible flow in (mostly) undergraduate classes for engineering/science students. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental fluid mechanics, and basic science such as calculus, physics, etc.

Includes: Examples (with solutions).

Elementary Differential Equations with Boundary Value Problems

Written in a clear and accurate language that students can understand, Trench’s new book minimizes the number of explicitly stated theorems and definitions. Instead, he deals with concepts in a conversational style that engages students. He includes more than 250 illustrated, worked examples for easy reading and comprehension. One of the book’s many strengths is its problems, which are of consistently high quality. Trench includes a thorough treatment of boundary-value problems and partial differential equations and has organized the book to allow instructors to select the level of technology desired.

Includes: Examples, and exercises.
