Assignment: General notes
- Part I: Check detailed approach to solve the problem numerically (about 70% of whole mark):
please refer to the chapters of “process modeling” and “numerical methods”
in the course notes for more information
the differential equation. One should explain what method (or scheme) is used. Implicit or explicit? Central
difference or forward difference? And so on…
- Set up the
algebra equation in matrix format (simple equation with subscript will be
- Specify what schemes will be used to solve the discretized algebra equation (Jacobi-Richardson
scheme, Gauss-Siedel or Successive relaxation scheme or SOR scheme?)OR Gaussian elimination?
- Specify the convergence criteria if iterative scheme is employed.
- Specify the initial condition (if applicable) and boundary condition explicitly
- Explain general step-by-step (including iteration step) procedure of numerical solution.
- Part II: Check the numerical program (about 15% of whole mark)
- Doesn’t matter what language you use (C, C++, Fortran and etc)
- Agreement of numerical scheme and programming itself will be briefly checked.
- Submit the assignment with the program as appendix.
- Part III: Check overall solution (15%)
- Check to see if the problem has been solved correctly or not in general
Please note that more marks have been placed on part I than on the part II because the programming itself is a one-to-one relation
with the numerical scheme. Also, the numerical scheme tells you how to solve (approach) the problem numerically.
