goals

  • Consolidation of the modelling for Maxwell-equations from the lecture Computational Engineering 1
  • Preparing the theoretical fundamentals for solving the underlying partial differential equations
  • Introduction in grid-dependent methods (Eulerian frame)
  • Communication of numerical solver methods for efficient and robust simulations
  • Communication of so called coupling methods, e.g., FDTD methods (Finite-Difference Time-Domain methods), which allow to reduce computing time
  • Consolidation of the spatial- and time-domain decomposition methods and their parallelisation
  • Introduction to commercial and academic simulation programs for solving such electrodynamics equations with focus in code-developping

content

  • Derivation of the hierarchical model-equations for the electrodynamics
  • Repetition and consolidation of the numerical methods for the Maxwell-equations (FDTD methods and domain-decomposition methods)
  • Basics of the grid-dependent methods (Eulerian frame)
  • Parallel methods for spatial- and time-decomposition methods
  • Examples in the areas of wave-equation, dipole antenna, fluid- and particle transport
  • Extensive practical sessions and programming-exercises in MATLAB and with focus of code-developping
