MECH 564

Advanced Finite Elements

Units: 1.5

A continuation of Introduction to Finite Element models (420/563) that covers more advanced FEM applications to linear static problems in structural mechanics. In particular, axisymmetric solids, 3D solids, plates and shells, special elements and mesh generation. Emphasis will be given to modern formulations of high-performance finite elements, especially for plates and shells, as opposed to the classical displacement formulation covered in IFEM. Begins with an overview of variational formulations useful for FEM.

Graduate course in the Mechanical Engineering program offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
