CEE 5720 Introductory Finite Element Analysis with Applications
Lecture: TR 2:55-4:10 HLS 366
In this course a firm historical and theoretical basis for the finite element method is offered. However, the primary focus is on application of the method to engineering problems (with an emphasis on solids and structures). Students in this course will write their own rudimentary finite element solver, as well as become familiar with a commercially available finite element software suite. The target audience is MEng students, upper level undergraduates, and Ph.D. students not planning on doing research work in computational mechanics.
