Engineering Methods - AMME3060

Year - 2018

This course will address the use of state of the art engineering software packages for the solution of advanced problems in engineering. We will cover the solution of partial differential equations in heat transfer; fluids, both inviscid and viscous, and solids, including plates, shells and membranes. While some analytical methods will be considered, the primary focus of the course will be on the use of numerical solution methods, including finite difference, finite volume and spectral methods. Commercial engineering packages will be introduced with particular attention given to the development of standards for the accuracy and representation of data.
