Although pseudocodes, Mathematica®, and MATLAB® illustrate how algorithms work, designers of engineering systems write the vast majority of large computer programs in the Fortran language. Using Fortran 95 to solve a range of practical engineering problems, Numerical Methods for Engineers, Second Edition provides an introduction to numerical methods, incorporating theory with concrete computing exercises and programmed examples of the techniques presented. Covering a wide range of numerical applications that have immediate relevancy for engineers, the book describes forty-nine programs in Fortran 95. Many of the programs discussed use a sub-program library called nm_lib that holds twenty-three subroutines and functions. In addition, there is a precision module that controls the precision of calculations. Well-respected in their field, the authors discuss a variety of numerical topics related to engineering. Some of the chapter features include… The numerical solution of sets of linear algebraic equations - Roots of single nonlinear equations and sets of nonlinear equations - Numerical quadrature, or numerical evaluation of integrals - An introduction to the solution of partial differential equations using finite difference and finite element approaches. Describing concise programs that are constructed using sub-programs wherever possible, this book presents many different contexts of numerical analysis, forming an excellent introduction to more comprehensive subroutine libraries such as the numerical algorithm group (NAG)..

The NCEES FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) examination is the first step in becoming a licensed engineer in the United States. This book addresses the newly-formatted 2014 Civil Engineering FE Computer-based examination specifications. This book is discipline-specific and covers the following subjects for the Civil Engineering FE exam: 1. Mathematics 2. Probability and Statistics 3. Computer Methods 4. Ethics and Professional Conduct 5. Engineering Economics 6. Statics 7. Dynamics 8. Mechanics of Materials 9. Materials 10. Fluid Mechanics 11. Hydraulics and Hydrology 12. Structural Analysis 13. Structural Design 14. Geotechnical Engineering 15. Transportation Engineering 16. Environmental Engineering 17. Construction 18. Surveying. The NCEES specifications are described in the NCEES Reference Handbook version 9.0 available on the NCEES website. This book is based on these specifications and has over 600 solved problems, which have been designed to be as exam-like as possible. The books works hand in hand with the NCEES Handbook. It uses the Handbook equations and notations, and provides numerous footnotes to guide the reader where the equation used in the problem can be found in the NCEES Handbook. Its goal is to provide an efficient preparation for the FE CE exam. This book uses most of the equations and concepts described in the NCEES specifications, but not all of them. This does not mean that only the equations and concepts covered in the book are important and that what is not covered is not important. Every field in engineering has broad applications and all equations and concepts in the specifications are equally important for the exam. This is a workbook. Every problem introduces a new principle, concept or application. Working with the solved problems and mastering the concepts and applications will help in preparing for the FE examination.

Jeffrey C. Evans, Michael A. Malusis ... Ground improvement has been one of the most dynamic and rapidly evolving areas of geotechnical engineering over the past forty years. Moreover, increasing development of sites with marginal soils has made ground improvement an increasingly important core component of geotechnical engineering curricula.

For numerous geotechnical applications soil dynamics are of special importance. In seismic engineering this affects the stability of dams, slopes, foundations, retaining walls and tunnels, while vibrations due to traffic and construction equipment represent a significant aspect in environmental protection. Foundations for mechanical equipment and cyclically loaded offshore structures are also part of the spectrum of application. This book covers the basics of soil dynamics and building thereon the practical applications in vibration protection and seismic engineering.

As the next generation geotechnical analysis software, midas GTS NX features the newest development in cutting-edge computer graphics and analysis technology. GTS NX fully supports the latest 64-bit OS Graphic user interface. The intuitive interface will enable new users to easily integrate the software in their work process. The fast analysis speed, outstanding graphics, and output capabilities will provide users with a new and advanced level of geotechnical design. Linear static analysis assumes ground and rock materials to be linear-elastic materials and uses static analysis to determine the behavioral characteristics when loading is applied. Ground materials only display linear-elastic properties in the early stages of loading, where only a small strain is generated. However, because Linear-elastic analysis does not consider failure and idealizes the stress-strain relationship linearly,it is widely used for simple analysis, such as identifying the stress distribution or concentration in the in-situ ground. In a broad sense, linear behavior can be viewed as a special form of nonlinear behavior but because linear analysis is convenient and intuitive, linear static analysis is categorized as a separate analysis type. Linear analysis, including Linear dynamic analysis, utilizes the elastic behavior of a defined material for analysis. Also, the non-linear behavior (tension only, compression only and non-linear elastic behavior) of elastic link elements or truss elements are ignored and the elements are used in the analysis as elastic bodies. Consequently, it is useful to use Linear static analysis to observe the approximate behavior of the ground, to organize the initial stage conditions of the construction stage or to conduct tunnel lining analysis. Particularly, Linear static analysis does not require recursive calculations and hence, it has a short calculation time. GTS NX considers pore pressure in Linear-static analysis and drained and undrained conditions can be assigned to elastic materials for analysis. All physical phenomena includes non-linearity. Ground or structural behaviors are not an exception. Non-linear static analysis is used to simulate the behavior of ground considering such non-linearity, when the change with time is small and can be ignored. GTS NX considers the following non-linearity. Non-linearity of material : This occurs when the stress-strain relationship is non-linear. Most ground materials have this non-linearity. Geometric non-linearity: If the displacement-strain relationship is non-linear, the linear assumption is no longer applicable when the displacement is large, or the rotational deformation is large. Non-linearity of load and boundary: Non-linearity that includes the non-linear behavior at an interface, or  non-linearity caused by the direction change of a load due to strain, caused by forces such as the follower force. GTS NX can consider all non-linearity mentioned above in analysis. Non-linear analysis can take a long time for complex non-linear systems because repeated calculations are conducted. Hence for the practicality, considering appropriate non-linearity can result in analysis results that simulate non-linear behavior, while maintaining the accuracy with little computational cost.
