CEE 262C: Coastal Ocean Modeling (OCEANS 262C)

Introduction to numerical methods for modeling flows in the coastal ocean and estuaries that are influenced by river flows, tides, winds and gravity waves. Topics include stability and accuracy analysis, curvilinear and unstructured grids, implicit/explicit methods, transport and diffusion, shallow water equations, nonhydrostatic equations, Navier-Stokes solvers, turbulence modeling, and wave modeling. Prerequisites: CEE 262A, CME 206, or equivalent.

CME 206: Introduction to Numerical Methods for Engineering (ME 300C)

Numerical methods from a user's point of view. Lagrange interpolation, splines. Integration: trapezoid, Romberg, Gauss, adaptive quadrature; numerical solution of ordinary differential equations: explicit and implicit methods, multistep methods, Runge-Kutta and predictor-corrector methods, boundary value problems, eigenvalue problems; systems of differential equations, stiffness. Emphasis is on analysis of numerical methods for accuracy, stability, and convergence. Introduction to numerical solutions of partial differential equations; Von Neumann stability analysis; alternating direction implicit methods and nonlinear equations. Prerequisites: CME 200/ME 300A, CME 204/ME 300B.
