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.
