Online course Computational Methods for Building Physics and Construction Materials


Free participation for Unite! students

The course “Computational Methods for Building Physics and Construction Materials”, offered by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at TU Darmstadt, contains detailed lecturing on basic computational methods for differential equations, numerical solution strategies, explicit and implicit discretization, method of lines, boundary conditions and implementation of physical processes that frequently occur in construction materials. It is developed for MSc, PhD, and Postdoc level. Emphasis is on students with a Civil Engineering background.

Attending students will become familiar with numerical solution strategies for common physical problems in construction materials. After this course, students will be able to use computational methods for their own research.

Students from Unite! partner universities can take part in the English-language course free of charge. The course is held virtually from April 12 – 16. Registration deadline is March 26.
