Computer-supported solution of engineering problems
FEKT-NPPRAcad. year: 2019/2020
Interpretation of numerical methods, implemented in widely-utilized CAD programs, is given. This course covers essential methods of solving both linear and nonlinear problems. Within each group, methods are classified according to their features and practical applicability. The comment is then centred on the well proven methods. For these methods, also the MATLAB source code is available in computer exercises.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Active knowledge of mathematic numerical methods of solving frequent practical problems as a precondition of effective utilization of professional programs, to which these methods are included.
The subject knowledge on the Bachelor´s degree level is requested.
