Course curriculum

1. an individual task
2. an analysis of the task
3. a study and search of literature
4. a study of codes
5 a suggestion of an analysis procedure of a partial problem
6. an utilization of available programs for an analysis of the problem
7. a study of manuals of the programs
8. a creation of a computational model
9. a finishing of the computational model
10. a performing a parametric study of the partial problem
11. an evaluation of the study
12. a treatment of results
13. a forming of conclusions


During this course a student learns to use theoretical knowledge obtained in previous subjects of static orientation for solution of problems in civil engineering practise. The knowledge about basic principles of mechanics and their application in finite elements method will be improved. After finishing the course he will be able to use computational programs based on finite elements method. Students will be skilled in solution comprehensive projects with their aspects like analysis of a task, study of literature and codes, a specifying of loads, a solution and analysis of results, an assessment and a conclusions.
