Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

On the basis of analytical model the student will be able to numerically solve using the PC the simple as well as complicated problems in the filed of thermal processes including those in industrial thermal devices, walls of the residential buildings and during the fuel combustion. The student also will be capable of design a simple user applications useful for the customer who is not interested in detailed solution of the problem under consideration.

Summary

The main goal of this course is to make the students familiar with some basic function of the Microsoft Office Excel software and to teach the students to take advantage of this software in the numerical calculation of the problems in the filed of thermal processes including those in industrial thermal devices, walls of the residential buildings and during the fuel combustion. The lessons will be focused mainly on application of the mathematical, statistical and logical function of the Excel as well as on the application of the control elements useful for handle computation in the application form. The basic graphical capability of the Excel will be used for the presentation of the computation results Part of the course will be the VBA programming language.
