Week 10

We looked at finite differences for the Heat Equation. This completes the examinable written material.

In VBA we implemented same.

Week 11 — 2nd 20% VBA Assessment

In the 09:00 class we will have a revision session, geared towards the 20% VBA Assessment 2. This will look at the 20% VBA Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet It might therefore be a good idea to go through this before next week.

In the 12:00 class we will have a revision session, geared towards the 40% Written Assessment 2. This will look at the 40% Written Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet It might therefore be a good idea to go through this before next week.

Formulae will be provided in the VBA 2 Assessment.

To understand how your student numbers generate constants (see below) see this VBA Test 2 from last year (do not read this as a sample – it included e.g. the Heat Equation which you will not be examined on (in VBA) and the Laplace’s Equation might be slightly simpler than what ye will have).

See last week’s Weekly Summary for the Format of the VBA Assessment 2.

Week 12 — 40% Written Test

The 40% Written Test is to be split in two.

The first part of the Written Test is the Theory Element (worth 20%). It will take place in B242 at 09:00, Tuesday 1 May.

From the 40% Written Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet, you will receive

  • one question from Runge-Kutta Exercises [10%]
  • 3/4 questions from Other Theory Exercises [10%]

This Theory Element is designed to take 30 minutes. You will be allowed up to 55 minutes.

The second part of the Written Test is the Calculations Element (worth 20%). It will take place during your Week 12 VBA slot. Like the 40% Written Assessment 2 Tutorial Sheet, you will receive

  • A damped harmonic oscillator, with m=1 for all groups but \lambda,\,k,\, x(0),\,x'(0) will be different for groups A, B, and C [8%]
  • A Heat Flux Density Vector Question, with different temperature distributions for groups A, B, and C. [4%]
  • A Heat Equation Question. With different k,\,L,\,T_0,\,T_1,\,\Delta t,\,\Delta x values for groups A, B, and C [8%]

This Calculation Element is designed to take 45 minutes. You will be allowed up to an hour and 55 minutes.

There will be no 12:00 class on Tuesday 1 May.
