24-703   Numerical Methods in Engineering

Location: Pittsburgh

Units: 12

Semester Offered: Fall

This course emphasizes numerical methods to solve differential equations that are important in Mechanical Engineering. Procedures will be presented for solving systems of ordinary differential equations and boundary value problems in partial differential equations. Students will be required to develop computer algorithms and employ them in a variety of engineering applications. Comparison with analytical results from 24-701 will be made whenever possible. 4 hrs lec. Prerequisite: Some computer programming experience. Crosslisted 12-703
