MECHGM05 Advanced Computer Applications in Engineering
|Title||Advanced Computer Applications in Engineering|
|Level||MSc / MEng|
|Taught by||Dr PJ Tan (50%) Module Coordinator|
|Dr Pavlos Aleiferis (50%)|
Familiarity with undergraduate courses in
mechanics of fluids, mechanics of materials, statics, dynamics and basic
All students are assumed to be familiar with
the principles of programming.
- Understanding the theoretical background to the workings behind commercial FEA and CFD packages.
- Appreciating the structure of programs for potential amendment and development
- To use commercial software packages for solving problems and assessing their limitations
- Ability to take a detached view in checking output
Assessment is entirely by coursework for MSc/Dipl students in Mechanical Engineering, Marine Engineering, Power Systems Engineering and MEng students. There are two pieces of coursework each for Finite Element Analysis (FEA1 and FEA2) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD1 and CFD2).
