The course contents as well as all further information about the course "FEM II" in summer semester 2023 can be accessed via the "Moodle Course".
Nowadays, the Finite Element Method (FEM) represents one of most widespread simulation methods in modern engineering sciences. The concept of the FEM consists of a numerical procedure for the approximate solution of linear and non-linear (initial) boundary value problems which are typically represented by partial differential equations. This course is based on the course Finite Element Methods I and elaborates further aspects and applications of the Finite Element Method.
The lectures focus on the following subjects:
Nonlinear elasticity (at small strains)
In the exercises, the focus is placed on:
Applications of the lecture's content
Programming in Python
Cycle: Summer semester
The module consists of weekly lectures and exercises. Python-based exercises are conducted in the CIP pool. Details on specific times and rooms, as well as all other information, can be found in the Moodle course.l.
Form of examination
The exam consists of a student project based on the finite element code developed during the semester and an oral exam.
