IIT Kharagpur

Kharagpur West Bengal

19 February 2018 - 23 February 2018

Short Term Course on Mathematical Methods in Civil Engineering 2018

Event Description


With the advancement of computing power and technology, mathematical methods play a crucial role to fully realize the advanced engineering systems. In particular, problems that were beyond our reach few decades ago can now be well tackled in today’s context. Moreover, scientific advancement and technological development clearly direct us to refine our knowledge of physical understanding on a scientific/engineering phenomenon. In this context mathematical representation of such complex systems and its solutions become increasingly important in present day situation.


The course will address both theoretical developments and practical applications related to Structural, Geotechnical, Transportation, Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering fields. The course will discuss the application of differential equations, numerical linear algebra, nonlinear optimization, statistical analysis, systems of linear equations, reverse engineering or inverse problem, particle based methods, finite difference method, advanced finite element within the realm of Civil Engineering. DATES AND VENUE

The training course will be held at Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Kharagpur during February 19-23, 2018.
