Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks In this seminar we address numerical methods for the simulation of hyperbolic partial differential equations. We discuss important examples of governing equations. In this context challenges typical for hyperbolic PDEs are tackled: Non-linearities with analytical solution approaches, Riemann solvers, domain decomposition, finite volume methods, high-order discretization, time stepping schemes, adaptivity, parallelization etc. Besides numerical theory we expect the students to apply and implement the learned concepts in the form of a small project, which requires extensive use of the learned theory. Example Topics: - 1D traffic flow analytical and numerical - Linear Systems and elastic waves - Tsunami simulation with finite volume methods - F-Wave Solver for Riemann problems
