CEE 3310 - Computational Methods for Engineering Applications


Credits: 3

Applications of numerical analysis and computer programming techniques to civil and environmental engineering problems. Review of mathematical background is presented with emphasis on numerical modeling and computer-oriented solutions for engineering applications. Topics covered include precision and accuracy, errors, roots of equations, solution of linear algebraic equations, statistics and curve fittings, and numerical integration and differentiation. Also reviews examples from different areas of practice in civil and environmental engineering, including stress transformation, numerical integration to obtain beam deflection, numerical solution of Euler’s buckling equation, roots of the equation for fluid flow in frictional pipe, optimization techniques applied to minimum potential energy, and solutions to the system of equations representing force-displacement relationship of a structure or the concentration of carbon monoxide in a space. Corequisite: MATH 3313 .
