Finite Element Analysis JEE350

Launceston

Introduction

Finite Element Analysis is an advanced unit that introduces the student to the theory and application of the Finite Element Method in engineering analysis and design. In addition to learning the theoretical bases of the finite element method, the student will also develop his/her applied/practical engineering skills by taking part in a problem-based learning activity conducted throughout the semester.

Note

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

Learning Outcomes

ILO 1 Demonstrate knowledge of the theoretical principles and limitations of the finite element method for linear, non-linear, static and dynamic analyses.

ILO 2 Develop appropriate and efficient finite element models of a given structure and critically assess the accuracy of the finite element solution.

ILO 3 Compare and categorize a set of design options by analysing the results of finite element simulations in order to select the most appropriate configuration.

ILO 4 Apply finite element analysis and rapid prototyping techniques in a design project and report the process and outcomes to a professional standard in oral and written form.
