2.093 Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Fluids I
Presents finite element theory and methods for general linear and nonlinear analyses. Reliable and effective finite element methods and their applications to solution of general problems in solid, structural and fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, and multiphysics problems including fluid-structure interactions. Formulation of governing continuum mechanics equations, conservation laws, virtual work, and variational principles for finite element solutions. Discretization of governing equations using finite element methods; stability, accuracy and convergence of methods. Solution of central problems and a term project using an existing general purpose finite element analysis program.
2.093 will be offered this semester (Spring 2017). It is instructed by K. J. Bathe.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
