  • Education cycle

    Second cycle
  • Main field of study

    Built Environment
  • Grading scale

    A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.

Intended learning outcomes

Students will learn practical modelling aspects necessary in realistic FEM analyses. Another goal is to provide students with skills in using the commercial FEM package ANSYS.

Course main content

The following modelling aspects in finite element modelling are discussed :

  • geometrical and material aspects
  • boundary conditions
  • choice of the elements
  • static and dynamic analyses
  • non-linear aspects

Several practical cases are presented.

A large-scale project, consisting of the modelling of a realistic problem, should be treated.


The course supposes previous knowledge in basic finite element theory.

Recommended prerequisites

Basic course on FEM theory and FEM usage.
