ENG315 Engineering Computing

This unit deals with the various methodologies and techniques to solve engineering problems through computation as applied in contemporary practice of civil and mechanical engineering. It covers the following topics: roots of equations, numerical differentiation, difference tables, linear systems, numerical integration, differential equations; the use of application software (including but not limited to structural and finite element programs for stress); numeric computation and visualisation.

This unit is reliant on on-line materials including electronic submission of assessment items. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection and a scanner.
