Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

MECE 4290U – Finite Element Methods

This course covers the theoretical and computational principles of the finite element method, including geometrical modelling, materials modelling, and discrete element formulation of flexible structures (bars, beams, frames, plates and shells). An introduction to nonlinear finite element analysis, modelling, errors and accuracy, and assembly of global matrices will be addressed. Students will have the opportunity to utilize commercially available software to solve various engineering problems. They will obtain experience with mesh generation, material property specifications, load applications, boundary condition applications, solution methods and interpretation of results. Applications will include 2-D and 3-D stress analysis and steady-state thermo-fluid applications.
