CE 30125 - Computational Methods, Fall 2010
Professor Joannes Westerink, Ph.D.
Civil Engineering and Geological Sciences
Course Structure: 75 minute classes - twice a week
Fundamentals of numerical methods and development of programming techniques to solve problems in civil and environmental engineering. This course requires significant computer use via a scientific program language such as Matlab and/or FORTRAN. Standard topics in numerical linear algebra, interpolation, discrete differentiation, discrete integration, and approximate solutions to ordinary differential equations are treated in a context-based approach. Applications are drawn from hydrology, environmental modeling, geotechnical engineering, modeling of material behavior, and structural analysis.
