Computers are ubiquitous throughout all life–cycle stages ofengineering, from conceptual design to manufacturing maintenance,repair and replacement. It is essential for all engineers tobe aware of the knowledge behind computer–based tools andtechniques they are likely to encounter. The computationaltechnology, which allows engineers to carry out design, modelling,visualisation, manufacturing, construction and management ofproducts and infrastructure is known as Computer–Aided Engineering(CAE).

Engineering Informatics: Fundamentals of Computer–AidedEngineering, 2nd Edition provides the foundation knowledge ofcomputing that is essential for all engineers. This knowledge isindependent of hardware and software characteristics and thus, itis expected to remain valid throughout an engineering career. ThisSecond Edition is enhanced with treatment of new areas such asnetwork science and the computational complexity of distributedsystems.

Key features:

Provides extensive coverage of almost all aspects ofComputer–Aided Engineering, outlining general concepts such asfundamental logic, definition of engineering tasks andcomputational complexity
Every chapter revised and expanded following more than tenyears of experience teaching courses on the basis of the firstedition
Covers numerous representation frameworks and reasoningstrategies
Considers the benefits of increased computational power,parallel computing and cloud computing
Offers many practical engineering examples and exercises, withlecture notes available for many of the topics/chapters from theASCE Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology,Global Centre of Excellence in Computing(www.asceglobalcenter.org), providing a valuable resource forlecturers.
Accompanied by a website hosting updates and solutions
Engineering Informatics: Fundamentals of Computer–AidedEngineering, 2nd Edition provides essential knowledge oncomputing theory in engineering contexts for students, researchersand practising engineers.
