Summary

 

Mathematics and Computing 2 - MECH50003

Aims

To continue the development of key mathematical and computational skills relevant to the wider mechanical engineering programme. Topics include the analytical solution of partial differential equations, basic numerical methods (interpolation, differentiation, integration), discrete methods for the solution of PDEs (finite difference, finite volume) and the iterative solution of systems of equations. For all of these topics, practical implementation through programming is studied. These skills and techniques are in support of ME2, ME3 and ME4 modules.

ECTS units: 10

Role

Associate Course Leader

Future Clean Transport Technology - MECH97090

Aims

 To provide:

·      A basic understanding of the design features of reciprocating internal combustion engines and the underlying engineering science, with particular reference to the fluid flow, thermodynamics and combustion processes of spark- and compression-ignition engines.

·      An awareness of the means by which the need for reduced CO2 and pollutant emissions is met.

·      A basic understanding of the design features of hybrid, electric and fuel cell powered vehicles and the underlying engineering science, with particular reference to system design of battery packs and fuel cell systems.

·      A basic understanding of how the technologies compare to each other and how they fit into the bigger picture of the whole transport/energy system.

A practical, industrial context for the above knowledge through talks from visiting industry experts.
