This unit will address the use of state of the art engineering software packages for the solution of advanced problems in engineering. We will cover the solution of partial differential equations in heat transfer; fluids, both inviscid and viscous, and solids. While some analytical methods will be considered, the primary focus of the course will be on the use of numerical solution methods, including finite difference, finite element, finite volume and discrete element methods. Commercial engineering packages will be introduced with particular attention given to the development of standards for the accuracy.
