ME-GY 7003 Finite Element Methods

3 Credits
The course explores derivation of element stiffness matrices for spring, bar and beam elements. Topics: Finite element formulation to determine many unknowns such as displacements, forces and reactions. Application to trusses, frames and two-dimensional problems in plane stress and plane strain under static loading conditions. Applications in thermal, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. Interpreting the results, convergence of solution and effect of meshing and symmetry conditions. Introduction to modern meshless techniques.

Prerequisite(s): Adviser approval.
