PROF: Dr. Reza Abedi

This course is intended to serve as a sequel to an introductory finite element method (FEM) course where conventional (continuous) FEM method is covered. The main difference of Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods to continuous FEMs the weak enforcement of jump conditions on the boundary of the elements. DG methods generally are more stable and perform better for dynamic problems involving shocks and other discontinuities. In this course we cover:

1. Rankine-Hugoniot jump conditions for conservation laws; Exact and some approximate Riemann solution schemes.

2. Differential forms (exterior calculus) to objectively express and combine space and time quantities.

3. Finite element formulation for DG methods.

4. Computational geometry aspects of DG methods (mesh smoothing, h-, p-, and hp-adaptive operations, moving boundaries, etc.).

5. Object-oriented design and implementation of DG (and FEM) methods

Repeatability: May be repeated. Maximum 9 hours.

BME 505 All Things Carbon (3)

SEC. 001 CRN 33064

TEXT: None

TIME: Zoom

PROF: Dr. Jackie Johnson

Carbon is the basis of life; as such biomedical engineering students have the ability to study this element along with associated biological applications. Diamond-like carbon has potential as a coating for orthopedic implants. Nano-crystalline diamond can be used as a biosensor. Carbon nanotubes have applications in pharmacy and medicine due to their large surface area. Carbon is a suitable coating for magnetic nanoparticles, which can be used for hyperthermia and magnetic resonance imaging. In summary, the ability of carbon to enhance medical diagnostics and treatment is wide-ranging and not fully exploited. Students will learn current applications of carbon in medicine and be able to project future uses once this course is completed.

PROF: Dr. Reza Abedi

This course is intended to serve as a sequel to an introductory finite element or computational mechanics courses. It is designed to deepen student’s understanding of the characteristics of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDE) and get familiar with solution techniques for dynamic problems.

Course Objectives

Provide sufficient mathematical background to read the current literature and understand new developments in the field.

Familiarize the students with various numerical schemes for continuum dynamics.

Relate theory to practical applications in computational science and engineering.

Develop the student’s capabilities for technical communication and independent research in computational science and engineering.

Repeatability: May be repeated. Maximum 6 hours.
