The purpose of this course is to provide students with the tools required for computational design and modelling for technological and professional materials engineering applications. The course starts with computer-aided drawing and design including dimensioning, tolerancing and standard drawing symbols, principles of detail design drawings and assembly drawings. Finite element, finite difference computational fluid dynamic modelling and then introduced based upon structural, heat transfer and fluid modelling respectively. The use of computational modelling as a part of materials
engineering design is emphasised.
