Students taking part in the 'Numerical Marine Hydrodynamics' OpenCourseWare project will learn about numerical methods within the context of marine hydrodynamics. Some of the topics discussed include the solution of differential equations by numerical integration and boundary integral equation panel methods. A background in ocean engineering with a substantial emphasis on calculus is recommended for successful completion of this course.

Numerical Marine Hydrodynamics: Course Description

Topics discussed in 'Numerical Marine Hydrodynamics' include fast Fourier transforms, integral boundary layer equations and numerical solutions and numerical lifting surface computations. Since many of the calculations are too complex to be completed solely by hand, students are expected to use the programming language, MATLAB, to produce graphs necessary for the successful solution to assigned problem sets. This OpenCourseWare is offered by Professor Jerome Milgram.

Problem sets and supporting files, study materials, lecture notes and class videos are available for download for free online. If you are interested in taking this free OpenCourseWare project, visit the numerical marine hydrodynamics course page.
