This course gives a general introduction to numerical solution techniques for ordinary and partial differential equations. Most examples are applications in structural mechanics; however, the techniques are generally applicable to all areas of engineering. The first part of the course is devoted to solving ordinary differential equations by approximate methods including finite differences, direct variational methods, weighted residuals, and energy based approximations both global and local (finite element) approximating functions. In the second part of the course, the preceding techniques are extended to obtain approximate solutions for partial differential equations for mixed boundary and initial boundary value problems.
