Aligarh: Subject Matter Experts have described computational methods and the many uses of numerical methods in mechanical engineering with their mathematical and practical applications in the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s “Computational Techniques in Mechanical Engineering” online workshop , ZH College of Engineering and Technology (ZHCET), Aligarh Muslim University (UMA).
Discussing the importance of computational techniques and their application in mechanical engineering, Professor Parvez Mustajab (Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology) said: “The extremely rapid pace at which new hardware and software emerge is constantly opening up new fields of application for digital. methods in engineering.
He explained how to develop appropriate models, derive numerical solution procedures, and use computer programs to solve equations and present the result of the solution.
Prof. MM Sufyan Beg (Principal, ZHCET) said, “The role of numerical methods in solving engineering problems has increased rapidly in recent years.”
He discussed computational techniques as powerful problem-solving tools, able to handle large systems of equations, nonlinearities, and complex geometries.
Professor Sufyan also talked about the new courses introduced at the College of Engineering.
“This workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and expertise to reduce higher mathematics to basic arithmetic operations through computational methods,” said Prof. M Muzammil (Chair of Mechanical Engineering Department).
Speaking on the Fuzzy-based Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) method, Professor Zahid A Khan pointed out: “In real-life problems, many critical parameters can directly or indirectly affect the consequences of different decisions . The application of multi-criteria decision-making theory involves the use of computational methods that incorporate multiple criteria and orders of preference in evaluating and selecting the best option from many alternatives based on the desired outcome.
Deliberating on the concept of “Factory System Simulation”, Prof. Mohammed Ali (Program Coordinator) explained how this application is used to assess the performance of the production system.
“The application of ‘Production System Simulation’ helps manufacturers verify and validate the intended function of a product under development, as well as the manufacturability of the product,” he said.
Professor S Fahad Anwar described “high fidelity solvers in fluid dynamics”.
He said: “With recent advances in high-performance computing, computational fluid dynamics modeling has become an integral part of engineering analysis, and in some designs it has been integrated with numerical optimization and methods. assistants”.
Prof. MN Mishra discussed ‘Supply Chain Simulation’ and presented the ARENA application in supply chain.
Professor Ajay S Singoli talked about “Smart Factory and Industry4.0” and talked about the importance of Internet of Things (IoT) and research opportunities in the field.
Prof. M Naushad Alam lectured on “Buckling Analysis of Laminated Smart Composite Beam” and deliberated on analytical and finite element approaches.
Professor MFS Baig spoke about “computing techniques and parallel programming”.
In the lecture on “Optimization using Genetic Algorithms”, Professor Faisal Hasan talked about the use of Genetic Algorithm in engineering problems.
Professor Imtiaz Ali Khan discussed “ergonomic machine interface design” and the extensive research in this area.
Professor Mohammed Ali also provided participants with hands-on training on ARENA software, while Dr Imran Ansari provided training on the use of ANSYS software.
Mohammad Nasir Khan (co-coordinator) conducted the farewell session and Dr M Shaaban Hussain (co-coordinator) delivered the vote of thanks.
A total of 342 participants from various universities and institutes at home and abroad registered for the workshop.
