Course content

Examples of computer applications for solving mathematical equations. The lab will involve development of programs based on numerical methods and statistical techniques for solving variety of common metallurgical and materials engineering problems. Typical examples: program for solving system of linear equations; case study based on material and heat balance in a metallurgical process. Program for regression analysis and curve / function fitting to a given data set; case study illustrating regression analysis. Program for root finding on non linear equation; case study for root finding. Program for solving differential equations based on Rungekutta formulation; case study illustrating use of differential equations; Linear programming problem
