Learning objectives Modelling and Programming 3
After the course, the student will be able to:
- split an engineering problem into sub-problems and develop a solution procedure.
- use standard routines in MATLAB for optimization and for solving non-linear equations.
- solve thermodynamic problems with common gases using the gasprop code.
This is a part of module 3, ME 3 Energy and Sustainability of the Bachelor Mechanical Engineering. See here for the complete description of the module.
Content Modelling and Programming 3
Gaining experience is a major part of learning to program. Whereas exercises in the ModPro 1 and ModPro 2 courses were explained step by step, you will be required to design your own program structure in ModPro 3. You will practice in thinking about the steps that are needed to solve engineering problems using MATLAB. Furthermore, you will become familiar with several methods for solving numerical problems and non-linear equations, as well as with several MATLAB optimization functions. You will learn to use the gasprop code to solve thermodynamic problems with common gases.
Non-ME students can take this course if they meet the entry requirements.
