Unit of study_

Advanced Computational Engineering - AMME5060

Year - 2020

This unit will cover advanced numerical and computational methods within an engineering context. The context will include parallel coding using MPI, computational architecture, advanced numerical methods including spectral methods, compact finite difference schemes, numerical dispersion and diffusion and efficient linear solvers. Students will develop to skills and confidence to write their own computational software. Applications in fluid and solid mechanics will be covered.

Classes
lectures, tutorials

Assessment
Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.

Assumed knowledge
Linear algebra, calculus and partial differential equations, Taylor series, the finite difference and finite element methods, numerical stability, accuracy, direct and iterative linear solvers and be able to write Matlab Scripts to solve problems using these methods.

Pre-requisites

UG students are required to complete AMME3060 before enrolling in this unit.

Courses that offer this unit

Non-award/non-degree study If you wish to undertake one or more units of study (subjects) for your own interest but not towards a degree, you may enrol in single units as a non-award student. Cross-institutional study If you are from another Australian tertiary institution you may be permitted to undertake cross-institutional study in one or more units of study at the University of Sydney.
