This course introduces students familiar with programing concepts to tools and techniques for developing software systems in the computational engineering context. The course teaches the fundamental strategies of modelling, abstraction, decomposition and reuse as methods for constructing software systems used in Engineering simulation. Verification and validation techniques, with an emphasis on testing, are taught as a means to ensure that students are able to undertake meaningful simulations using computational tools, and deliver reliable software for this purpose. The course will be taught using one or more programming languages and environments which are widely applicable to engineering simulation.
In particular, the course will cover: interactive and stored program use of computers, modelling in the simulation context; program organisation; accuracy and performance issues in numerical algorithms; structured numeric data types and abstract data types; procedural and object-oriented programming approaches; visual programming approaches for simulation; the software life-cycle; and verification and validation. Case studies will be taken from various Engineering simulation scenario.
Two Assignments (30%); Lab Tests (20%); Final Exam (50%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Thirty one-hour lectures and nine two-hour tutorial/laboratory sessions
