CE 536 Introduction to Numerical Methods for Civil Engineers
3 Credit Hours
This is an entry level graduate course intended to give an introduction to widely used numerical methods through application to several civil and environmental engineering problems. The emphasis will be on the breadth of topics and applications; however, to the extent possible, the mathematical theory behind the numerical methods will also be presented. The course is expected to lay foundation for students beginning to engage in research projects that involve numerical methods. Student will use MATLAB as a tool in the course. Experience with MATLAB is not required. The course will be taught in an interactive setting in a computer equipped classroom.
