Basic FEM Analysis 7,5 Credits

Course Contents

The course contains the basic concepts needed for the implementation of FEM such as numerical integration, assembling and the concepts of weak and strong forms of a differential equation. From the solid mechanics elementary differential equation models are derived, e.g. Naviers equations for elasticity and Euler's beam equation.

The course contains the following:
- Basic FEM: Partial integration into one and several dimensions; strong and weak form of
heat conduction in one and two dimensions; Galerkin's method; shape functions; numerical integration; isoparametric elements
- Theory of elasticity: Three-dimensional elasticity, planar tension and elongation; finite elements for elasticity
- Beam elements: the Euler-Bernoulli beam; strong and weak form; continuity of derivatives in approximations
- Introduction to FEM in Solidworks and FEM in Matlab
