Teaching

  • ME 2016 Computing Techniques: An introduction to numerical methods for the solution of mechanical engineering problems. Topics include: sources of errors in computing, mathematical bases of numerical methods, and implementation of numerical techniques using MATLAB.  Fall 2013, Spring 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2016
  • ME 4189 Structural Vibrations: Single and multi-degree-of-freedom systems as well as continuous systems are analyzed for their vibrational response characteristics using both exact and approximate methods. Fall 2014, Spring 2016, Fall 2016
  • ME 8853 Structural Acoustics: Description of  the fundamental characteristics of sound generated by vibrating structures. The sound generated by elastic plates and the interaction of sound with structures in enclosed volume of fluid are analyzed. An introduction to the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the Boundary Element Method (BEM) for the numerical solutions of structural acoustics problems concludes the course. Fall 2015
