AOE 2074 Computational Methods - Revised 2/4/05 Primary Learning Objectives Upon completion of the course the student will be able to solve mathematical models of physical systems using numerical methods, specifically 1. Estimate error magnitudes, distinguish between round off and truncation errors, and calculate absolute and relative, true and approximate errors in numerical computations. 2. Find roots of equations using bracketing and open methods; explain the differences between the two methods and point out the advantage of each method. 3. Solve linear algebraic equations using Gauss elimination, LU decomposition, and the Gauss-Seidel method; as well as perform pivoting to reduce error; explain the differences between the methods and understand the advantages of the methods. 4. Fit curves to data using linear least squares regression, data linearization, and polynomial regression; explain the advantage and disadvantage of using higher order polynomials. 5. Interpolate polynomials and derive splines for interpolation; explain the benefits of using splines. 6. Integrate functions using the trapezoidal rule, Simpson’s rules, Romberg integration, and Gauss-Quadrature ; explain the differences between the methods and understand the advantages of the methods. 7. Numerically solve boundary and initial value ODEs. 8. Read, write and modify structured professional-standard code to perform the above techniques. AOE 3014 AERO/HYDRODYNAMICS COURSE OBJECTIVES Primary Learning Objectives Upon completion of AOE 3014 the student will be able to: 1. Use Potential Flow Theory to test a flow for conservation of mass. 2. Use Potential Flow Theory to test a flow for irrotationality. 3. Use Potential Flow Theory to build mathematical models of flows around bodies. 4. Use Bernoulli’s equation to calculate changes in pressure and velocity around shapes. 5. Calculate force and moment coefficients around bodies in a flow. 6. Use Thin Airfoil Theory and Panel Methods to calculate the lift on 2-D shapes. 7. Use Lifting Line Theory to calculate the lift and pitching moment on 3-D wings.

8. Use Vortex Lattice Theory to calculate the lift and pitching moment on 3-D wings. The degree to which each student is able to satisfy these course objectives will be assessed through homework assignments, tests, special projects, and a final examination. AOE 3044 Course Learning Objectives Analysis (College of Engineering) Last revised: 8/19/2003 Primary Learning Objectives The student will be able to: 1. Calculate steady and unsteady heat conduction cases. 2. Explain the fundamentals of radiation heat transfer.
