Aims 

After having passed this course module, the student is able to:
-model the typical industrial structures
-choose an appropriate element type for the considered structure
-choose an appropriate analysis type for the considered structure
-verify the FE-analysis results by analytical computations

 
Contents 

During the course the student will become familiar with:
-linear analysis
-vibrations of the structure
-stability behaviors of the structures
-non-linear analysis
-sub-modelling techniques
-manufacturing requirements in the FE-analysis
