The aim of this course is to give students the necessary knowledge to carry out computation on mechanical structures using the Finite-Element Method and considering linear elasticity or thermo-elasticity constitutive equations. The course focuses on Solid Mechanics and the solving of 1D, 2D and 3D problems. Particular attention is given to the modeling of structures made up of beams.
At the end of the course, students will have acquired the following skills:
• Acquisition of formalism and basic concepts of Continuum Media Mechanics - Solids. • Understanding of and operating the Finite Element Method. • Ability to compute mechanical structures with the use of ANSYS Workbench R2020, a FEM industrial software.
Lectures: 12 x 1.5 hours = 10 hours
• Continuum Mechanics - Elasticity (3 x 1.5 hours + 1 hour = 5.5 hours) • Solid Finite Elements (3 x 1.5 hours = 4.5 hours)
Tutorials: 9 x 1.5 hours + 1 hour = 13.5 hours
• Continuum Mechanics (6 x 1.5 hours = 9 hours) • Solid Finite Elements (4 x 1.5 hours = 6 hours)
Pratical Work of Engineering Structure Calculations : 6 x 1.5 hours = 9 hours
Individual work: 45 hours
Final examination: 2 hours
