Mathematical Modeling (etit-619)
V-UE; 3 SWS; ECTS-Points: 4
Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Thomas Meurer
Mathematical models play a crucial role in almost any scientific domain. In this context modeling refers to the determination of an abstract mathematical description (approximately) reflecting the behavior of the system under consideration. For this algebraic, ordinary or even partial differential equations are taken into account depending on the problem setting, the degree of detail and the modeling goals. This lecture gives an introduction to the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems. The lecture addresses the following topics:
- Rigid body kinematics
- Rigid body dynamics
- Energy principles
- Heat transfer and principles of chemical reaction engineering
Data and files will be updated during the teaching period.
- Lecture notes (WS15/16)
