ME-625 ADVANCED FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
Credit Hours = 3
- Review of finite element method including discretization, element formulation, assembling process, boundary conditions, solving system of equations, and post processing. Nonlinear quasi-static and dynamic problems, variation calculus, classical theory of plasticity, theory of non-linear FEM including various numerical integration schemes, kinematics of large deformations and metal plasticity theories, explicit and implicit implementations of constitutive models into finite element software, related engineering applications, assessment of damage and failure, prediction of deformation localization and necking, elastic instability, hyper elasticity, coupled analysis / simulations including fluid-structure, thermal-structure, composite structure-optimization. Use of software/programming with available codes/in house codes in solving nonlinear problems, post processing, parametric design and optimization.
