In the days before computers, engineers used slide rules and pencils to work out math problems, such as determining the stresses a dam must withstand, or the most efficient operating weight of an airplane.
Although computers can solve many math problems, engineers still need a solid foundation in math and a good understanding of mathematical principles.
In many ways, trig is similar to plane geometry in that it relies heavily on formulas and logarithms, rather than solving complex equations.
Trigonometry and calculus, together, form the basis for another math-heavy class: engineering physics.
This 7 hour video tutorial teaches you the essential skills of matlab with step-by-step video tutorials.
On the 29th of March and for the whole weekend a team of six MSc Robotics students of Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) participated at the ‘Swarm and Search Artificial Intelligence 2019 Fire Hack’. Continue Reading Originally published on SFPE Europe.
Trigonometry is one of the more usual maths for engineers.
By applying the principle of trigonometry, engineers can calculate such data as the height of an existing structure, the measurement of an angle, or the distance between two points.
Contributions containing formulations or results related to applications are also encouraged.
The primary aim of Mathematical Problems in Engineering is rapid publication and dissemination of important mathematical work which has relevance to engineering.
