Introduction to Computer Programming with MATLAB CEE/MAE M20 Lecture 1a Introduction CEE/MAE M20 Why computer programming? To calculate a result from a complicated algorithm To analyze limited measurement data in order to estimate the state of a system To simulate , e.g., natural phenomena or behavior of engineered systems To control a system to behave in a particular manner To automate a tedious or time-consuming process To design new products, materials, or techniques To efficiently carry out an otherwise inefficient process 2 CEE/MAE M20 Examples 3 Behind almost any modern engineering or scientific endeavor, there is likely some computer code Navigation Cantilever Beam Mechanical Structural Design and Optimization Piezoelectric fan Research by Prof. E.T.’s Group Transmission line tower CEE/MAE M20 Examples 4 Behind almost any modern engineering or scientific endeavor, there is likely some computer code Navigation Cantilever Beam Structural Design and Optimization Piezoelectric fan Research by Prof. E.T.’s Group Transmission line tower CEE/MAE M20 Examples 5 Behind almost any modern engineering or scientific endeavor, there is likely some computer code Virtual Prototyping Airbag inflation Injury prediction Crash-worthiness simulations CEE/MAE M20 Examples 6 Behind almost any modern engineering or scientific endeavor, there is likely some computer code Extreme event simulations Bird collides with aircraft wing Penetration of Reinforced Concrete Panel Research by Prof. E.T.’s Group Concrete testing at high-strain rates Research by Prof. E.T.’s Group Full-system simulation of SRB Schematic of SRB Accident scenarios

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
