EG3007: ENGINEERING ANALYSIS AND METHODS 1 (2020-2021)

Last modified: 01 May 2020 08:56


Course Overview

Modern engineering analysis relies on a wide range of analytical mathematical methods and computational techniques in order to solve a wide range of problems. The aim of this course is to equip students with the necessary skills to quantitatively investigate engineering problems. Examples applying the methods taught to practical situations from across the full range of engineering disciplines will feature heavily in the course.

Course Description

The course is set in an environment of engineering applications. The course starts with an introduction to Laplace transforms. The concept of transfer function is explored and used to study the stability of systems having feedback. An introduction is given to Fourier Series and Fourier Transforms and their applications. Engineering applications of MATLAB are then discussed. The numerical solution of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is discussed in the context of MATLAB. Practical work involving the MATLAB applications mentioned above is undertaken. The next section of the course is devoted to an introduction to partial differential equations (PDEs) is given. The use of MATLAB to obtain numerical solutions to Partial Differential Equations Toolbox is discussed.
