Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to derive the basic equations of the finite element method, to discuss relationships between key parameters and to competently evaluate the results of finite element calculations.

 

 

Subject of course

Capacity of FEM; equations of motion for finite elements; shell elements; numeric integration; MATLAB-codes for FEM; commercial codes for FEM

Teaching methods

Structured lectures based on Powerpoint presentations, in coordination with the existing written teaching materials. Program implementation of a small finite element code. Application examples with commercial finite element software.

Mode of examination

Immanent

Additional information

This lecture will be held in a hybrid manner. The lectures will be held face-to-face at the university. The exercise units will be made available through TUWEL as recorded lectures. For each block, there will be a question-and-answer session. These sessions will be held either face-to-face or online via Zoom. We will discuss further details concerning these sessions during the first lecture on October 11th, 2022.

Due to the increasing interest in this lecture and limited human and room resources, this lecture is primarily offered to master students, who may sign in with mid of August. Please note that registering for the course is indispensable.

For the exercises, basic programming skills are required. A short introduction to MATLAB is provided. Neithertheless, visiting the lecture Programmieren im Bauingenieurwesen Einführung und Grundlagen may help to learn the basic concepts needed for the course.

Assignment to master program Civil Engineering (code: 066 505):
Modulus 1 of specialization "Theorie und Simulation";
Modulus 3 of other specialization programs.
