This book illustrates how the development of a mathematical model is central to the analysis and design of an engineering system or process. The key elements in model development involve assumptions about the physics, the application of basic physical principles, the exploration of the implications of the resulting model, and the evaluation of the degree to which the model mimics reality.
Provides examples of experimental data against which the results of modeling exercises can be compared.
-- Exposes readers to the wide range of technologies to which they may be asked to apply their skills.
