CEE 570 - Finite Element Methods
Last offered Spring 2023
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
This course covers theory and application of the finite element method; stiffness matrices for triangular, quadrilateral, and isoparametric elements; two- and three-dimensional elements; algorithms necessary for the assembly and solution; direct stress and plate bending problems for static, nonlinear buckling and dynamic load conditions; displacement, hybrid, and mixed models together with their origin in variational methods.
Undergraduate degree and a course in Structural Mechanics (CEE 471).
