Simulation of Physical Processes

ENG ME 526

Modern simulation methods are covered for describing and analyzing the behavior of realistic nonlinear systems that occur in the engineering and science disciplines. By developing and applying such methods and tools, much deeper understanding, insight, and control of novel technologies can be gained, thereby often greatly aiding technology development, and sometimes providing the leverage to turn a novel technology into a practical reality. Physical and numerical changes of scales necessary for modeling macro-, meso-, and nanoscopic phenomena will be covered. Advanced numerical methods will be addressed for attacking nonlinear partial differential equations, as well as key aspects of the finite element method. Extensive use will be made of the modern computational tools Mathematica and COMSOL. Examples will be covered that include problems in micro and nanoelectronics, bioengineering, material science, photonics, and physics. Connections of these examples to sensing instrumentation and control will be made.
