VM305 – Introduction to Finite Elements in Mechanical Engineering


Credits: 3 credits

Pre-requisites: Vm 211


Introduction to theory and practice of the finite element method. One-dimensional, two-dimensional, and three dimensional elements are studied, including structural elements. Primary fields of applications are strength of materials (deformation and stress analysis) and dynamics and vibrations. Extensive use of commercial finite element software packages, through computer labs and graded assignments.
