|Subject Overview:|| |
Upon completion, students should be able to comprehend a wide variety of numerical computational techniques for solving ordinary and partial differential equations frequently encountered in engineering problems and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various competing computational methods.
Topics covered include modelling engineering systems using ordinary and partial differential equations; finite difference schemes; and weighted residual methods and spectral methods.
All necessary theories in order for students to be able to use commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software proficiently.
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end-of-semester examination (60%); two assignments, each not exceeding 50 pages including diagrams, tables, computations and computer output due throughout the semester (20% each).|
