101-0159-00LMethod of Finite Elements II3 credits2GE. Chatzi
AbstractBasic theoretical and procedural concepts of the method of finite elements (FE) for the analysis of nonlinear & dynamic systems are introduced. Kinematic and material nonlinear effects and the dynamic analysis of structures in terms of modal and time domain analysis are described.
The course is complemented by Homework Sessions using computing tools and FE software such as MATLAB, ABAQUS & ANSYS.
