Numerical Fluid Mechanics

Course Summary

This course is based on 2.29 Numerical Fluid Mechanics (Numerical Marine Hydrodynamics), Spring 2007 made available by Massachusetts Institute of Technology: MIT OpenCourseWare under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
This course provides an introduction to numerical methods. These include number representation and errors, interpolation, differentiation, integration, systems of linear equations, and Fourier interpolation and transforms. Students will study partial and ordinary differential equations as well as elliptic and parabolic differential equations, and solutions by numerical integration, finite difference methods, finite element methods, boundary element methods, and panel methods.
