FAF3212 Non-Linear FEM Civil Engineers 7.5 credits

Ickelinjär FEM för civilingenjörer

The purpose of this course is to give engineers, scientists and researchers a deeper insight into the finite element method with an emphasis on methodologies and applications for non-linear problems. The fundamental theoretical background, the computer implementations of various techniques and modeling strategies will be treated. Practical implications of recent research developments will be stressed.
