Description

A MATLAB® Primer for Technical Programming for Materials Science and Engineering draws on examples from the field, providing the latest information on this programming tool that is targeted towards materials science. The book enables non-programmers to master MATLAB® in order to solve problems in materials science, assuming only a modest mathematical background. In addition, the book introduces programming and technical concepts in a logical manner to help students use MATLAB® for subsequent projects. This title offers materials scientists who are non-programming specialists with a coherent and focused introduction to MATLAB®.

Key Features

  • Provides the necessary background, alongside examples drawn from the field, to allow materials scientists to effectively master MATLAB®
  • Guides the reader through programming and technical concepts in a logical and coherent manner
  • Promotes a thorough working familiarity with MATLAB® for materials scientists
  • Gives the information needed to write efficient and compact programs to solve problems in materials science, tribology, mechanics of materials and other material-related disciplines
