Finite Element Modeling & Validation


Introduction to fundamental theory and applications for design engineering using engineering mechanics applied to many aspects of stress analysis problems. Different element types, model formulations, stress recovery techniques, modeling considerations, convergence criteria, and error estimates are included in this course. The instruction implements a commercial finite element analysis program and result validation through both classical solutions and testing hardware. Spring Only.
