1- Introduction to modeling

  • Objective of modeling in Engineering Sciences. Presentation of concrete cases.
  • Contribution of numerical methods as a complement to the theoretical and experimental approach
  • Simplifying assumptions (2D, temporal/permanent, etc.)
  • Notion of similarity

2- Numerical modeling

  • Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) and Partial Differential Equation (PDE)
  • The 3 main types of discretization: Finite Difference, Finite Volume and Finite Element
  • Direct/Iterative resolution - Implicit/Explicit
  • Choice of a software tool adapted to the modeling needs
  • What is parallel computing

+ various applications using the Comsol software.
