Course Description

In this course students will acquire the basic techniques of simulating physical mechanical engineering phenomena using a computer. Students will also acquire techniques of modeling and solving numerically theoretical functions, which strictly cannot be solved numerically.

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to acquire the basic ability to simulate actual mechanical engineering field conditions and fundamental phenomena using a computer.

Grading Policy

Evaluation is carried out by regular test (75%) and report on problem solving exercises (25%). It is requirement that you attend more than 2/3 of a unit acquisition. The submitted reports will be
corrected and returned.

Requirements(Assignments)

It is important to have a thorough understanding in mathematics, especially calculus until 1st semester of 2nd year. Please prepare your textbook beforehand (about 1.5 hours) before class, please review the contents of the study carefully (about 1.5 hours), including using the textbooks and notes after the lesson. Please follow the examples. After the lesson, you will complete the exercises and submit the report according to the instructions given (about 2 - 3 hours). In the second (lecture) and the third (practical) contents of the lesson, examples of concrete preparatory and review contents are described.

Note

Please bring a scientific calculator. Depending on the degree of comprehension, the progress may be brief, so we will instruct the review subject and the next preparatory range at the time of each lesson. The contents of the print / assignment delivered in class will also be uploaded to LMS.
