Course Synopsis

The main objective of the course is to provide students with the knowledge, comprehension and analysis of some problems using finite element analysis (FEA). Topics covered in this course include introduction and brief history, element and terminology, stress and balance, boundary condition, continuity approach, mathematics approach, finite element model (FEM), linear shape function, potential energy approach, Galerkin approach, stiffness matrix formation,  finite element equation, quadratic function, 2-D coaxial problems, partial element numerical metric and integration with higher order element, 2-D and 3-D framework’s problems with FEA. Topics such as steady heat transfer, torsion and flow problems, finite element formulation, element mass matrix, eigen value evaluation and eigen vector by interactive method and Jacobi are also included. There will be a design project that uses finite element software.
