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.
Refer to the assessment table in the unit outline.
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.
UG students are required to complete AMME3060 before enrolling in this unit.
