Module
Aim(s): 
The
module aims to familiarize students with the
concepts and modelling techniques of
differential equations that are used extensively
in building services engineering analyses, such
as heat transfer, fluid flow in open and close
conducts, indoor ventilation, typical classical
heat/mass transfer problems, seepage problems,
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.
