Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics
Computer simulation is now an established discipline that has an important role to play in engineering, science and in newly emerging areas of interdisciplinary research. Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. The techniques play an ever-increasing role in industry and there is further emphasis to apply the methodology to other important areas such as medicine and the life sciences. This course provides a solid foundation in computer modelling and the finite element method in particular.
The entry requirements for this course is a 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree in engineering, mathematics or similar relevant science discipline. English language requirement IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or Swansea University recognised equivalent.
Modules on this course can vary each year but the following would be expected: Reservoir modelling and simulation; solid mechanics; finite element computational analysis; advanced fluid mechanics; computational plasticity; fluid-structure interaction; nonlinear continuum mechanics; computational fluid dynamics; dynamics and transient analysis; computational case study; communication skills for research engineers; research project.
