An introduction to the application of numerical methods and statistical techniques to the solution of civil engineering problems. Introduction to the systems approach and system analysis terminology. Numerical solution of civil engineering problems using root finding, interpolation, integration, and the solution of systems of algebraic equations. Introduction to the numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations. Techniques such as multiple linear regression, stepwise regression, time series analysis, nonparametric tests, and optimization are applied to the design and operation of civil engineering systems.
