Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). Using mathematical modelling as the basis, computational methods provide procedures which, with the aid of the computer, allow complex problems to be solved. This course provides a solid foundation in computer modelling and the finite element method in particular and utilises the expertise of academic staff to provide hish-quality postgraduate training. This course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators (JBM).

Course modules

Modules on this course can vary each year but the following would be expected: numerical methods for partial differential equations; 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.

Assessment methods

The award of the MSc is based on satisfactory performance in examinations, continuous assessment and research dissertation. The examinations are taken in January and May/June and, if passed satisfactorily, students move on to the full-time research project during the summer. The research dissertation is submitted in September and is examined externally.
