Objectives This compact, application-oriented course provides an introduction to the numerical stress analysis and strength assessment of lightweight structures using the Finite Element Method.
Subject Introduction to the theoretical formulation of the Finite Element (FE) method; FE element types; FE analysis types (static and dynamic analysis, Eigen-value analysis, linear and nonlinear analysis); important topics of FE analysis (convergence, element selection, stress singularities); introduction to the operation of a FE program (Abaqus); calculation of various example problems.
Criteria for evaluation individual project
