ME5223*Finite Element Analysis3 ch (3C)

Introduction to the basic concepts of finite element analysis (FEA) including domain discretization, element types, system matrix assembly, and numerical solution techniques. Application of FEA to solve static, dynamic and harmonic problems of linearly elastic solid bodies and heat transfer will be covered in detail. Graduate students enrolling in this course must submit an additional project in order to receive credit for this course.

Prerequisites: ME 2122 and ME 3613 and MATH 3503 and (CS 3113  or CE 3933 or CHE 2418).
