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.
Progressive specialisation: A1N (has only first‐cycle course/s as entry requirements)
Education level: Master's level
Admission requirements: Mechanical Engineering 75 ECTS credits, including materials engineering courses 15 ECTS cr, solid state mechanics 7.5 ECTS cr, and linear algebra 7.5 ECTS cr, finite element methods 7.5 ECTS cr, or equivalent.
Selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both.
