FINITE ELEMENT METHODS IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING


Linear finite element analysis using the direct equilibrium method and the principle of minimum potential energy. Focus on structural mechanics using spring and bar elements (including two-dimensional trusses), beam elements, two-dimensional plane stress/strain elements, axisymmetric elements, and isoparametric formulation. Concepts of heat transfer, fluid flow, and thermal stress also introduced.
