Simulation and modelling (7.5 ECTS credits)
Simulation and modelling using numerical methods constitutes an increasing part of an engineer's toolbox. The course treats fundamental finite element methods (FEM) with matrix statics and numeric analysis. The student is introduced in the application of FEM for calculations of strength and deformations in different components. The student will gain knowledge in material modelling as it is an important part in material understanding and a part in the calculation work and interpretation of the FEM result.
