AbstractBasic theoretical and procedural concepts of the method of finite elements (FE) for the analysis of
- Plasticity
- Large Displacement Problems
- Fracture Mechanics
- Nonlinear Dynamics
- Thermomechanics
ObjectiveThe class overviews advanced topics of the Method of Finite Elements, beyond linear elasticity. The concepts are introduced via theory, numerical examples, demonstrators and computer labs.
