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
