    Practical applications of engineering mathematics

    wer in practical life r ve gonna apply d concepts in eng maths???
    may b simple maths is applicable .wat is d use ?? is it simply tat a engineer shud study these concepts or is he gonna apply all these in his working area???

    @vivekanandan: hey my sincere request to you please dont use texting type of shortforms here...do type completely it will take not more than 5 sec...
    what ever we learn during our study is applied in some or the other area ....especially maths is very applicable subject in real life....be it geometry or probability or simple calculations...

    I graduated in 1960. I still actively use in daily design work the engineering calculations I learnt as a student. There is an added benefit if you do this. You can postpone dementia in your old age.

    Dude, i don't know in which tear now you are studying but i can tell you you are going to need the "integration and derivatives" not only next years but for your whole life!!!


    Do math and you can do anything.

    lol, Mathematics was originally developed for applying it usefully only(in my point of view)....! But,nowadays mathematics is not learnt how it was meant to be learnt...! Nowadays mathematics is becoming synonymous to the word "LOGIC" among students(mostly engineering)...! we are taught a certain logic and are asked to proceed in such a way to arrive at a point...! we seldom seem to go in depth in that...! Im dead sure that most of the engineering students(including me) know the definition of Laplace and fourier transforms but do not know why it is defined in such a way...! Yes, mathematics will help you in future to perform calculations(as bioramani sir quoted)...!! General mathematics must be with you forever..!!

    You need to know matrices and determinants.

    in electrical engineering you will need matrices to solve problems in mesh analysis.

    Matrices are used extensively in Finite element methods.

    Does your job count as "practical life"? In one of the most mathematically intense jobs I have had, I worked on two projects that made heavy use of my college math.

    One project ran the three power lines of a three-phase motor through series transformers such that a voltage could be added or subtracted from the supply voltage to reduce the motor's physical vibration harmonics. This was completed and delivered to the customer. They needed a very, very smooth running motor. I can't say it was my baby, but I did help with the coding.

    The other was even more bold. They were attempting to pick the voltages off of a three-phase input to generate a virtual DC bus, and then switch the DC bus to produce a variable speed three-phase output. Thus they would have a variable speed, three-phase motor controller with no transformer. I again helped with it, but my computer tools were extremely inadequate and I left before the project was done and never heard if it succeeded.
