Engineering Analysis (AMME2000)


This course is designed to provide students with the necessary tools for mathematically modelling and solving problems in engineering. Solution methods will be considered for a range of standard engineering problems including; Conduction heat transfer in one and two dimensions, hydrostatics and hydrodynamic balance for internal and external flows, spring/mass systems, vibration and stability problems. The focus will be on real problems and numerical solution methods and will include separation of variables; Fourier series and Fourier transforms; Laplace transforms; scaling and finite differences.
