M E 369M M E 369M. Computational Methods in Thermal/Fluid Systems. 3 Hours.

Use of basic tools of computational mathematics to set up numerical simulations for a variety of problems in thermo fluids. Explicit versus implicit time-stepping schemes, the issues of numerical stability and numerical errors, the issue of computational costs, difficulties with boundary and initial conditions, basic decision paths in the choice of numerical methods depending on the target system, and design of diagnostic steps. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Mechanical Engineering 369M and 379M (Topic: Comput Meth Thermal/Fluid Sys) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Upper-division standing.
