2) Numerical Computation This course concentrates on the mathematics and physics involved in using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package for fluid flow analysis, and some aspects of turbulence modelling research. CFD packages are used extensively in the aerospace, marine, energy, and defence industries, and it is important for end-users to understand the principles of how to use them and also interpret the results.

Online resources for Part 2 covering the finite element method can be found here.

3) Advanced Analytical Techniques for Continuum Modelling. This module discusses the recent trends in themodelling of complex materials and wave propagation in such media. There are many applications in the aerospace, marine and defence industries where one needs to understand how sound is generated, or how materials affect the properties of waves passing through them.

4) Advanced Mathematical Methods. This is one of a series of core modules and covers the advanced mathematical techniques which underpin a number of courses including those above. There are many applications in the aerospace, marine or defence sectors which could use the advanced techniques discussed in this module and which are not found in undergraduate courses.
