Modelling of materials processing (6 points)


Leader: C Davies

Clayton First semester 2003 (OCL)
Clayton First semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: Modelling is an intensely practical discipline and the principal mode of teaching will be by the testing of existing models, and the construction of new models. Topics studied will be model classification, modelling techniques (empirical, phenomenological, statistical and probabilistic models), integration of material models and continuum models, and information retrieval and experimental design. Resources will be accessed via a unit web site or CD-ROM, and a discussion group will be established for students to share experiences. Small-group work will also be a component of the learning, wherein groups will be asked to examine one aspect of modelling and report to the wider class.

Assessment: Major project: 60% + Tutorial assignments: 40%

Contact Hours: 48 hours of self-directed study, 16 hours residential workshop and 82 hours major project
