COSC 89.18 Computational Methods for Physical Systems

The Physical Computing course introduces students to mathematical concepts and algorithmic techniques for developing computational approaches to simulate, optimize, design, and control various physical systems. Course topics cover fundamental numerical approaches for modeling and simulating rigid body, soft body, and cloth, as well as design and optimization algorithms for drones and soft robots. The materials will be illustrated using examples and applications from physics-based animation, robot design, fashion design, and 3D printing.





Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
