The background to the finite element method and its use in various industrial applications is explained in this course. As well as the modelling of linear static and dynamic problems, the modelling of material and geometric non-linearity is an important aspect of the course. Coursework assignments will be based on the student edition of ABAQUS which is supplied with the Course Textbook which students are required to purchase.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
The main learning outcomes will be familiarity with the following topics:
• the fundamental equations of mechanics of solids (kinematics, equilibrium and constitutive) of beams, shells and solids.
• The basis of the finite element method for linear problems
• Static linear analysis of space frames
• Dynamic linear analysis of space frames
• Static non-linear analysis of space frames
• Dynamic non-linear analysis of space frames
