Module
Aim(s): 
The
module aims to familiarise students with the
concepts and modelling techniques of
differential equations that are used extensively
in engineering analyses, such as beam deflection
and vibration, typical classical plate problems,
seepage problems, torsion of noncircular
crosssections, steadystate fluid flow problems
and others. It also aims to develop analytical
solution techniques and a working knowledge of
numerical tools to solve the engineering
applications modelled in differential equations.

Objectives: 
On
completion of this Module, students are expected
to be able to:
1. model and solve the governing ordinary or
partial differential equations of simple
engineering systems;
2. solve manually first order linear ODEs and
constant coefficient second order linear ODEs;
3. analyse the steady or transient state of an
engineering system by solving the appropriate
boundary value problem or initial value problem;
4. solve the governing differential equations of
engineering problems by means of, where
appropriate, Laplace transform, Fourier series,
and/or finite differences; and
5. implement a suitable computer algebra system
to solve engineering problems expressed in
(systems of) differential equations.
