Partial differential equations and their classification; boundary and initial conditions; analytical solution methods. Introduction to computational solution techniques and packages in solid mechanics (FEM), fluid dynamics (CFD) and heat/mass transfer.
To extend students’ exposure to, and understanding of the significance and solution of differential equations by adding partial differential equations (PDEs) to the already-familiar ordinary differential equations. Based on this mathematical understanding of PDEs, students will then become familiar with the underlying principles of the numerical solution techniques of these same equations that are utilised in commonly-employed computational packages such as COMSOL, used not in a “black box” manner but, rather, with an appreciation of the underlying mathematics and numerical techniques that are embedded within them. This understanding of computational methods will be further augmented by the students’ own development and implementation of standard algorithms for numerical solution of PDEs.
