Course Description for Modeling and Simulation of Materials

EMA5814: Modeling and Simulation of Materials
Prerequisites: Acceptance into the MS program in Materials Science and Engineering or permission of instructor
Description: This course introduces the general computing and programming skills that are necessary to perform numerical computations and simulations in materials science and engineering. This includes an introduction to simulation methods for continua including finite differences and finite elements, as well as probabilistic approaches such as the Monte Carlo method. Also covered are techniques for simulating material properties based on atomistic structure such as density functional theory and molecular dynamics.
