Summary

 

Course/Module

Tutor, Stress Analysis 2. (Undergraduate)

Tutor, Math Year 2. (Undergraduate)

Finite Element Analysis and Applications - ME3-HFEAA

Aims

The aim of the course is to teach the students to use Finite Element programs in a practical way to solve problems in linear elastic stress analysis. A student who has studied the course should be able, in a later industrial setting, to undertake the analysis of real problems with a fair understanding of sensible modelling procedures. In support of this, the course is split into two stages:

  1. Theoretical study of the Finite Element method, with emphasis on understanding what goes on inside a typical, modern, commercial program
  2. Practical experience in analysis using an industry-standard, interactive, Finite Element program.

ECTS units:    6   
Contributing to Course Elements: 6 to ME3-LCTVS or ME4-LCTVS

Course Leader

Stress Analysis - ME3-HSAN

Aims

The aim of the course is to reinforce the student's knowledge of stress analysis, to extend this knowledge to more advanced theories and techniques and to apply these to practical problems. Most of these will be developments of methods which have been previously acquired but applied to more sophisticated problems. New areas of thermal stresses, plastic deformation and residual stresses will be treated and a new technique of analysis using energy methods will also be introduced and developed.
