Credits allocated: 6
Recommended semester/trimester: Environmental Manufacturing Technologies - master (compulsory), 3. semester
Level of study: -- item not defined --
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
Throughout the semester two test worth 20 points are written. Passing the test requires at least 10 points. The exam, consisting of both a written and oral part, is scored a maximum of 30 points. Passing the exam requires a minimum of 18 points. The student is awarded credits for the course if they successfully pass the written tests and examination. Their performance is graded according to the following:
A 46-50 points, B 41-45 points, C 37-40 points, D 32-36 points, E 31-28 points
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The student learns basic knowledge about the finite element method. The course is focused primarily on the application of FEM in engineering practice as a progressive tool for the analysis of technical solutions and the development of new ones. The lectures focus on explaining basic structure and principles of the software, understanding specific FEM problems and limitations. Attendees are acquainted with software tools and their possible applications in engineering practice. The core of the lectures create practical examples of simulations dealing with a variety of FEM and computed mechanical problems. Exercises focus on acquainting students with FEM software, allowing them to apply knowledge obtained during lectures.
