EGM302 Finite Element Analysis

An introduction to the theory and practice of the finite element methods. One and two dimensional elements are studied, including structural elements. Primary fields of applications are strength of materials (deformation and stress analysis), dynamics, and heat transfer. Extensive use of commercial finite element software packages, through in-class (hands-on) experiences, and a course project.
