Course detail

Application of FEM

FSI-KAMAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course is focused on practical application of FEM software, because these methods are usual computing tools for design and verification of industrial facilities. This type of software is widely used in all branches of the industry worldwide. It is possible to solve a lot of hard and hard to analytically difficult-to-solve problems with their aid.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will acquire to solve basic as well as combined types of loading with the aid of numerical methods FEM. On the basis of solving students will acquire a calculating algorithm so that they can develop their knowledge.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge ofelasticity and strength of structures, mechanics, limit states and theory of materials.
