About this course

To help you identify and describe the broad variety of computational tools that are proven or have the potential to prove beneficial in the area of explosives, which is achieved by providing hands-on experience of using some of these tools as applied to real problems and scenarios.

What you will learn

You will learn to:
  • justify when to use computational tools, experimental work or both to solve a problem or carry out research in EOE
  • assess the accuracy, relevance, advantages and disadvantages of using computer modelling tools in EOE
  • evaluate different computer modelling tools and assess which is the best to use to solve an EOE issue

How will this course help my career?

You will have studied:
  • accuracy of computer codes
  • effects of time-step size and msch size
  • errors that can occur in computer codes
  • issues in setting up and running computer codes

Before you attend

If you are seeking a Ministry of Defence (MOD) funded place, you will need to demonstrate in your application that there is a clear business need to undertake the course. 

Can I attend this course?

This course is suitable for the following type(s) of applicant.
  • Industry
  • Military
  • MOD Civil Servants
  • Partners Across Government (PAG)
This course is suitable for those who wish to explore some of the modelling and simulation codes that are available to help complement experiment in the field of explosives.

This module does not require a high level of computing skills or programming ability however, if you have a basic or no computing skills you may find the course challenging.

How will I learn?


How will you be assessed?

If you choose to undertake this accredited course, there is also an assignment demonstrating the use of computing modelling tools in explosives.

This accredited short course, which will be taught at MSc standard, is one of the modules that comprise the MSc in Explosive Ordnance Engineering.
