To obtain credit student submit solved problems specified in the exercises.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student will be learned basic theory and computational procedures in finite element method for solution of problem in mechanics and technical physics.
Acquainted with the transition from differentional formulation of basic problems to integral formulation and method of discretization by finite element method. The exercises will learn to carry out computations in these fields by program ANSYS.
Course contents:
• The principle of the finite element method (FEM) and its scope of application
• Basic relationships and procedures for solutions static and dynamic strength problems
• Steady state and time-dependent temperature field in the body by conduction, convection and heat radiation
• The system of equations for solving fluid flow using FEM
• Acoustic pressure waves. Interaction with the environment. Frequency analysis of acoustic oscillations
• Basic analysis of electromagnetic fields. Strength of magnetic field effects in ferromagnetic environments
• Effectively solving large systems of linear and nonlinear equations in the FEM
