Applied FEM II G2F, 6 credits, MT510G

The course focuses on the practical application of the finite element method (FEM) and, to a large extent, omits the underlying theory.

Students perform stress analyzes, buckling analyzes and modal analyzes using commercial FE software. FE analyzes are performed with the element types: two- and three-dimensional solid elements, beam elements, and shell elements, where applications and capabilities of these element types are discussed.

The course deals with nonlinear FE analysis of the types: plasticity problems, contact analysis and nonlinear geometry analyzes. Error sources such as discretization errors, modeling errors and convergence problems are addressed.
