16.90 Computational Methods in Aerospace Engineering


Class Info

Introduction to computational techniques arising in aerospace engineering. Techniques include numerical integration of systems of ordinary differential equations; numerical discretization of partial differential equations; and probabilistic methods for quantifying the impact of variability. Specific emphasis will be given to finite volume methods in fluid mechanics, and energy and finite element methods in structural mechanics.

This class has 16.004, and 6.041 as prerequisites.

16.90 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Radovitzky and D. L. Darmofal.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 1-390.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
