Institut für Angewandte Mathematik

Lecture in the Summer Term 2024

Numerics and simulation/ Elective subject mathematics (FEM und Anwendungen)

Content

We will deal with applications(and some analysis of finite element methods for solving practical problems in
natural science and engineering:
 timedependent partial differential equations (heat equation, wave equation)
 continuum mechanics
 fluid mechanics/Stokes equation
 coupled problems and domain decomposition

Expected prior knowledge

analysis and computational methods of partial differential equations, in particular finite element methods

Scheduled dates

 on Mondays 10:1511:45 in seminar room STEG006
 on Wednesday 10:1511:45 in seminar room STEG006 (alternately with the Practical)
 Scheduled dates: TUG Online
 first lecture: March 4, 2024

Practical

 Exam method and evaluation of the exercise course:
 There will some exercise sheets with calculation and coding examples.
 The students have to mark (votieren) the examples they were able to solve at the beginning of each
class. The students can be asked to present any example marked as solved on the blackboard. Due to new
study directives the language of presentation is English.
 The percentage of marked examples will account for 60 % of the total number of points.
 The particpants have to present at least 6 calculation examples succesfully. The quality of the
presentations will account for 40 % of the total number of points.
 After voting or submission for two exam dates the course will be assessed negatively if applicable.
