Applied Numerical Engineering - MECH304

The unit is designed to teach the students applications of mathematical equations commonly used in engineering practice, specifically in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA). The students will have prior knowledge of the required mathematical concepts and will learn how to apply those in real-world engineering. It covers a broad range of topics, such as numerical differentiation and integration of differential equations and partial differential equations, central differencing schemes, Runge-Kutta methods, stiffness and multistep methods and boundary value and eigenvalue problems that have specific applications to real world engineering problems. The unit will also emphasize error analysis, optimization techniques and curve fitting methods that are applied in practical engineering fields.
