This course will train you to analyse real world structural mechanics problems using the finite element method. You will be introduced to the mathematical basis of finite element analysis, on which nearly all structural analysis software is built. You will learn how to apply commercially available finite element software to solve real-world engineering problems. The course will cater to the specific challenges of engineers across all mechanical disciplines (Aerospace, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Mechatronic and Naval). Any student wishing to extend their structural analysis skills should take this course.
