UE Numerical methods in solid and fluid mechanics 2

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


This second part of the course introduces students to finite difference methods as a means of solving different type of differential equations that arise in fluid dynamics.
Fundamentals of numerical analysis, ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations related to fluid mechanics and heat transfer will be reviewed.
Error control and stability considerations are discussed and demonstrated.
A simple code using the finite difference method will be developed, tested and used on a one-dimensional partial differential equations.
