Finite Element Analysis Applications I (3) Solutions of advanced engineering design problems using finite elements. Intended for engineering technologists.
MET 415 Finite Element Analysis Applications I (3)
Finite Element Analysis Applications I is a required course for junior or senior-level students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology (METBD) baccalaureate degree program. Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computer-simulation tool which is frequently used in engineering practice. Students study fundamental topics in static, structural FEA with the goal of mastering the usage of this software tool to become efficient and effective users of FEA technology in their engineering careers. Emphasis is placed on appropriate modeling (symmetry, simplifying assumptions, etc.), clear communication of analysis findings, and verification of results.
