Engineering Informatics offers a novel, practical approach to computer programming that encompasses knowledge assimilation, decision-making capabilities and technical agility, together with concepts in computer-aided engineering that are independent of hardware and software technologies. After more than ten years of experience teaching courses on the basis of the first edition, the authors have now translated this extra experience to enrich and expand the current contents of the book. Also, additional topics have emerged as being important to the fundamental knowledge that all engineers need. Thus every chapter of this new edition is thoroughly revised and expanded; major updates include material on what engineers do when they want choices in open worlds (especially for abductive and inductive tasks), algorithmics (including examples with pseudo-code), the concept of a Turing machine, network science, applications of object representation, the effects of managerial reorganization upon functional dependencies in databases, the concept of uncertainty in computational mechanics, some examples of computational fluid mechanics, multicriteria optimization, 4d simulations. The authors also consider the benefits of increased computational power, parallel computing and cloud computing.
