MMAE 451 - Finite Element Methods in Engineering

Course Title: 

Finite Element Methods in Engineering

Course Description: 

Principles of minimum potential energy of structures--stiffness matrices, stress matrices and assembly process of global matrices. The finite element method for two-dimensional problems: interpolation functions, area coordinates, isoperimetric elements, and problems of stress concentration. General finite element codes: data generation and checks, ill-conditioned problems, and node numbering.
