Finite Element Analysis JEE350

Introduction

Finite Element Analysis (JEE350) 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.
