    Explanation of codes

    The code indicates the education cycle and in-depth level of the course in relation to other courses within the same main field of study according to the requirements for general degrees:

    First cycle
    G1N: has only upper-secondary level entry requirements
    G1F: has less than 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    G1E: contains specially designed degree project for Higher Education Diploma
    G2F: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    G2E: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements, contains degree project for Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science
    GXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.

    Second cycle
    A1N: has only first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    A1F: has second-cycle course/s as entry requirements
    A1E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (60 credits)
    A2E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (120 credits)
    AXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified.

  • Grading system: Fail (U), Pass (3), Pass with credit (4), Pass with distinction (5)

Learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to


  • describe how 3D geometry is represented in a computer,

  • identify suitable mathematical models in structural mechanics and fluid mechanics,

  • identify suitable numerical methods to compute the solutions to these mathematical models,

  • choose suitable software tools to solve these problems,

  • generate computational grids and handle advanced software, pre- and post-processing,

  • evaluate simulation results based on the mathematical and numerical theory and identify possible shortcomings in the results,

  • interpret computed solutions.

Content

The contents is coupled to two different application areas: fluid dynamics and structural mechanics. The contents include grid generation and interface to computer aided design (CAD), practical aspects of finite element methods (FEM) and finite volume methods (FVM), choice of the mathematical model and adjustment of the model, visualisation and post-processing.

Instruction

Lectures, laboratory work and assignments.

Assessment

Written exam (3 credits) and approved assignments (2 credits).
