CEE 3310 - Computational Methods for Engineering Applications


Credits: 3

Introduces applications of numerical analysis and computer programming techniques to solve 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, numerical integration and differentiation, and solution of ordinary differential equations. Examples from different areas of practice in engineering are reviewed such as 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, as well as solving the system of equations representing force-displacement relationship of a structure or heat transfer in solids, among others. Corequisite: MATH 3313 .
