Contents

Nowadays, the Finite Element Method (FEM) represents one of most widespread calculation methods in modern engineering. It helps even the way of looking at problems regarding different physical-technical procedures. The concept of Finite Element Method consists of a numerical procedure for the approximate solution of linear and non-linear (initial) boundary value problems which are typically formulated through partial differential equations.

The lectures focus on the following subjects:

  • Strong and weak form of balance equations (balance of linear momentum, heat conduction problem, ...)
  • Polynomial interpolation and shape functions
  • Discretisation of the weak form
  • Connectivity/Assembly
  • Master element concept
  • Numerical integration
  • Matrix representation

In the exercises, the focus is placed on:

  • Introduction to commercial FE-program
  • Applications of the lecture's content
  • Programming in MATLAB

Examinations

MMT and Erasmus students will receive a grade for the FEM-I course based on an assignment (programming homework), and on an oral examination about the assignment and about the complete course material (lectures, tutorials).
Note that each student has to solve the programming homework individually on his/her own - if (parts of the) submissions are similar to each other or even identical, the respective submissions will be graded “5.0, not passed”.
A registration (name, matriculation number) for the programming homework/oral examination via mail to your tutorial supervisor is required.

Further information on the assignment will be provided on the examination sheet itself.

Deadline for registration:    01.02.2019, 11:59pm 28.02.2019, 11:59pm 
Handout of programming homework: 04.02.2019 14.03.2019
Deadline for submission:  22.03.2019 03.05.2019, 11:59pm
Oral examination:   29.03.2019 10.05.2019

Maschinenbau-Studenten: Der Kurs FEM1 ist Teil des Moduls FEM1+FEM2. Die reguläre Modulprüfung in Form einer schriftlichen Klausur findet am Ende der FEM2-Veranstaltung statt.
Diese Modulprüfung umfasst dann die Inhalte von FEM1+FEM2. Eine Einzelprüfung für FEM1 ist deshalb nicht vorgesehen.
