This course introduces concepts in finite element analysis and covers one- and two- dimensional element formulation and structural analysis. This finite element analysis is extended to three dimensional problems in dynamic systems and control, design and manufacturing, mechanics and materials, and fluids and thermal systems. Students solve problems both manually and with the use of modern computer finite element software, ANSYS and FLUENT.
