The course consists of lectures, homework assignments, and seminars. In the lectures, the theory for the different topics is presented, including the numerical structure for implantation of material models in commercial FE codes. In the homework assignments, the students will perform a numerical implementation of the different parts using Matlab. The students will then present their results to each another in a seminar.
Intended learning outcomes *
The overall purpose of the course is that the student should get a thorough understanding of the numerical implantation of FEM and the analysis methods that are available in FEM.
After the course the student should be able to
implement new material models in commercial FE codes like Ansys, Abaqus, etc
implement time dependent material models in an FE code
The course contains a few lectures and a number of home assignments.
