ENGINEERING ANALYSIS 3

ECTS Credits: 5

Objectives:

This module aims to introduce the students to the theory and application of the two most widely used numerical methods in engineering analysis: the Finite Element Method and Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Syllabus:

Partial derivatives and differential equations (PDE); Characteristics and domain of influence; Finite Difference method; Global error and convergence; Local truncation error and consistency; Stability; Conservation equations of fluid dynamics; Mathematical and numerical difficulties; Finite Volume method; Discretization of the domain; Semi-discrete form of the equations; High-resolution methods; Boundary conditions; Introduction to turbulence modelling.
