Computational Continuum Mechanics A - MECH60021

Aims

The course is designed to introduce the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and to demonstrate how problems in continuum mechanics can be solved using numerical techniques. Particular attention is paid to the theory and implementation of the finite element method. The course provides the theoretical basis for Masters level courses on applications of finite element methods (FEAA) and finite volume method (CFD) and is a companion course to ME3 Fluid Mechanics (FMX) and ME3 Stress Analysis (SAN).

ECTS units:    5

Advanced Control - MECH97062

Aims

The principal aim of the course is to give students understanding and working knowledge of modelling, analysis and design methods in relation to continuous and discrete control systems. Introduction to state variable analysis is also provided. It is assumed that the students have some knowledge of classical control theory, including frequency response methods and complex frequency methods. A level of understanding of linear algebra is also assumed. Part of the timetabled lecture periods is dedicated to solving the tutorial examples with the aim of highlighting the more subtle aspects of the material presented in the lectures.
