ME 465 Advanced Finite Element Applications

This course builds on the knowledge of introductory finite element modeling and analysis course to provide students with advanced working knowledge to tackle real world problems. Advanced element types such as Plate and Shell as well as Gap and Contact will be discussed. Advanced modeling and analysis topics include nonlinearity in stress analysis(including geometric and material nonlinearity), Buckling, Gap/Contact analysis, forced vibration and frequency response, advanced thermal/structural interactions, and mixed element modeling. Also offered for graduate-level credit as ME 565 and may be taken only once for credit.
