The students understand the basic principles of the FEM.
They have a knowledge about reliability and accuracy.The object of Finite Element course is to introduce students to the basics of finite element analysis and simple simulations using ANSYS. Students carry out their works primarily using ANSYS Workbench with minor pre-processing / post processing in Excel and MATLAB.
At the end of this course, the student should be able to independently and individually prepare a simulation setup, run the simulations, analyze the results and report it.

The emphasis of the course will be on application of finite element modeling for solving real engineering problems. For each simulation, the students together with the tutor develop the simulation setup, analyze their behavior.
Topics and Course Project includes:
Introduction of finite element modeling, historical background, state of the art techniques, industrial applications, future visions, selected topics in the area on finite element modeling, business aspects of the simulations
Understanding of Meshing, theoretical description of 1D, 2D Elements
