AICTE-QIP Short Term Course On Advanced Computing Tools in Civil Engineering 2018
About the Course Given the scarcity of analytical solutions for mathematical models of engineering systems and the versatility of computational procedures in treating such systems, research efforts continue to focus on improving computing tools. Moreover, with the advancement of computing power, computational algorithms that were relevant a few years ago are irrelevant today. Thus, it is essential to improve our knowledge to fully realize the advanced computing technology. In this one week short course, it is planned to discuss several such advanced computing tools applicable to civil engineering domain. In addition to the conventional numerical computational techniques such as the finite element method (FEM), boundary element method (BEM) the new meshless based techniques will be discussed in detail. Advanced finite elements like Disconcontinuous Galerkin (DG) method, Extended finite elements (XFEM), Nonconforming finite elements, will be discussed. Machine learning tools play a very crucial role in todays’ computing world. Participants will have a detail exposure in different machine learning tools such as artificial inteligence, Fuzzy logics, artificial neural network, genetic alhgorithm, support vector machines, differential evolution etc. Particle based methods like smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH), material point method, peridynamics etc. will be elaborated in this course. In addition to it is planned to focus on strucrual, geothechical, water-resources, hydrodynamics, transportation, fluid structure and soil-structure application of such algorithm. Inverse problems and structural health monitoring will be also addressed. Also, participants will have a detailed software exposure involving tutorial such as Python scripting, ABAQUS, and ANSYS etc.
