Description
FINITE ELEMENT METHODS
The fundamentals of the finite element method are presented. A general approach to the development of the finite element method is given. Emphasis is placed on understanding the theory behind the development of the method as well as applications to engineering analysis problems. Application problems are solved by the students during the course on a general-purpose finite element analysis program. Students perform model generation, solution, and post processing of results.
